Conclusions

The meta-analysis tends to support the effectiveness of long-term PA intervention on promoting healthier BMI among children in primary school settings. The high heterogeneity of recruited studies suggests more high quality school-based RCTs among diverse populations are needed to yield a more robust conclusion.
