“…Of the different major CT programs, there were four studies of Bolsa Família in Brazil [ 13 – 16 ], four studies of Oportunidades in Mexico [ 22 , 27 , 29 , 30 ], two studies of Familias en Acción in Colombia [ 17 , 32 ], and two studies of Juntos in Peru [ 18 , 24 ]. The relationship of CT programs with BMI, overweight and/or obesity, was described in studies from South Africa [ 21 ], Japan [ 20 ], Canada [ 31 ], and the United States (Alaska) [ 23 ]. Fourteen of the studies focused on conditional CT programs [ 13 – 19 , 22 , 24 , 27 30 , 32 ], and six studies described unconditional CT programs [ 20 , 21 , 23 , 25 , 26 , 31 ].…”

“…Weight and height were reported by caregivers for 5th grade adolescents, whilst they were self-reported for 8th and 11th grade adolescents. BMI was calculated according to the WHO Child Growth Standards and was expressed as z-scores, representing the deviations in standard deviation units from the mean of a standard normal distribution of BMI specific to age and sex ( 31 , 32 ). Following the cut-off point recommended by the WHO, BMI-for-age z-score < −2SD was defined as thinness among adolescents ( 33 , 34 ).…”
