On page 449, column 3, in the section “Variation in Absolute BMI Change Across Initial Weight Categories”, this reads: “Those children who started the trial as obese and were exposed to the intervention had a mean BMI change of –0.80 ± 1.48 versus obese children in the control group who experienced a mean change of 0.08 ± 0.467.” This should have read: “Those children who started the trial as obese and were exposed to the intervention had a mean BMI change of –0.80 ± 1.48 versus obese children in the control group who experienced a mean change of 0.08 ± 0.67.”
