    Abstract

    Increasing attention is paid to the potential health effects of children's sedentary bouts and breaks, rather than total sedentary time. This paper discusses currently used operational definitions of sedentary bouts and breaks in studies among children. Remarkably, these studies applied different operational definitions, complicating comparison between studies. To advance the field of sedentary behaviour epidemiology, we need a clear and 'evidence-based' operationalization for such sedentary bouts and breaks.
