The aim of this thesis was to examine the relationship of parental- and child behaviors with the development of adiposity and cardiometabolic health in children, and to provide more insight in the direction of the associations by using data of prospective population-based studies in high-income populations. Most studies described in this thesis were embedded in The Generation R Study, a prospective population-based cohort study situated in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
