Abstract

Vitamin D status has been associated with cardiometabolic markers even in children, but the associations may be confounded by fat mass and physical behaviour. This study investigated associations between vitamin D status and cardiometabolic risk profile as well as the impact of fat mass and physical activity in Danish 8-11 year-old children, using baseline data from 782 children participating in the OPUS School Meal Study.
