Objective: This study aimed to examine the prevalence of meeting the 24-Hour Movement Guidelines among overweight and obese (OW/OB) children from low-income conditions and compare this prevalence by gender, age, and body mass index (BMI) classification. Methods: Accelerometer-based physical activity (PA), self-report sleep duration (SD), and screen time (ST) were analyzed in 72 OW/OB eight to 12 years old children (21 girls) from low-income conditions. Results: None of the participants met the recommendations for all three behaviors, and only 9.3% met for two behaviors simultaneously. Recommendations for PA, SD, and ST were met for 18.5%, 51.5%, and 4.9% of children, respectively. The prevalence of meeting the recommendation for SD was higher (p=.027) in younger participants (≤10 years old, 65.7%) than for the older ones (>10 years old, 37.5%). Conclusion: None of OW/OB low-income children met the 24-Hour Movement Guidelines. These results appoint for the urgent attention of health and education professionals in order to include opportunities for PA practice and knowledge about sleep and sedentary behaviors in future interventions.
