From: Quantifying parent engagement in the randomized Fuel for Fun impact study identified design considerations and BMI relationships

  Standardized Parent Participation Profilea
PD (n = 105) b,c Non-PD (n = 672)
Program Activities
 Family Fun Nights (n = 95) 13 (12%) 82 (12%)
 Recipe Preparation (n = 53)** 36 (34%) 17 (3%)
 Action Packsd (n = 185)* 16 (15%) 169 (25%)
About Eating (n = 70)** 33 (31%) 37 (5%)

 Accelerometry (n = 459) 57 (54%) 402 (60%)
  1. Table entries are frequencies (%)
  2. a Calculated by dividing (PPP) by number of activities offered
  3. b PD Positive deviant parent defined as participating in 75% or more of available activity types
  4. c Column percentages are proportion of PD or non-PD parents participating in the listed activity
  5. d Take home activity packs that aligned with classroom lessons/activities to be completed by parent with child and signed completion verification returned to school.* Chi Square between activity participation or not and Positive Deviant status p <0.05
  6. ** Chi Square between activity participation or not and Positive Deviant status p < 0.001
