toddlers, using an objective measurement of physical activity (accelerometry), also found that males were significantly more active than females, 15 which implies that this finding may not be solely due to the subjective nature of the tool used in this study. It may be that differences in physical

intervention elicited changes in health-related outcomes. The mediation effects allowed us to explain some the intervention effects. An additional strength of this study is the objective measurement of the mediator (step-based PA). Several limitations have to be considered when interpreting the finding of the

pedometers are regarded as an objective measurement device, the data obtained does not offer the same level of detail as accelerometers. Specifically, they are not able to give precise information about the characteristics of the activity (eg, loading magnitude or loading frequency) in relation to bone
