Abstract Introduction:<\b>
According to the body of literature, health-related quality of life (HRQL) is associated with physical activity (PA) levels and sedentary time in children. The aim of this study was to analyse the association of HRQL with PA levels and sedentary time in children and separately by gender.Method:A total of 262 children (54.3% boys, age: 8.5 ±0.5) from 7 schools of Granada (Spain) participated in the study. To evaluate HRQL we used the Kindl-R children questionnaire. The sedentary time and PA intensity levels were assessed using a tri-axial accelerometer for seven consecutive days (Actigraph wGT3X-BT, Pensacola, FL, USA). Several multiple logistic regressions were used to analyse the relationship between HRQL dimensions and sedentary time and PA levels (light, and moderate-vigorous). Results:<\b>
We found significant associations only in girls. The self-esteem dimension was associated with higher values of light PA (β=0.004; 95%-CI=0 to 0.008; p=0.029. In addition, the school dimension was associated with less sedentary time (β=-0.003; 95%-CI= -0.05 to 0; p=0.032) and an increase of moderate-vigorous PA (β=-0.008; 95%-CI= -0.16 to 0; p=0.04).Conclusions:The findings indicate that self-esteem dimensions positively influence daily light PA, and that there is an association between the school dimension and a decreased sedentary time and improvement in daily moderate-vigorous PA in girls. Thus, programmes focused on health-related quality of life (self-esteem and school) must consider the desirable effect over PA promotion in children.Funding:The PREVIENE Project was funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (DEP2015-63988-R, MINECO, FEDER, EU).
