Summary This thesis investigated associations and impacts of sitting and light-intensity physical activity on children’s and adolescents’ health. Light-intensity physical activity moderated associations between sitting and adiposity; sitting increased and physical activity decreased over a two-year period. Height adjustable desks and pedagogical strategies positively modified classroom children’s sitting and adolescents’ health.
