Correction to: Journal of Immigrant and Minority Health

The original version of this article unfortunately contained errors in Affiliation 3, Acknowledgement, Table 1 and in the text under Methods section. Also, a Co-corresponding author has to be included in the article.

In affiliation 3, “Department of Nutritional Sciences” should be “Division of Nutritional Sciences.”

Dr. Margarita Teran‑Garcia is added as a co-corresponding author of this article and the author is also affiliated to “Cooperative Extension, College of Agriculture and Consumer Economics (ACES), University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL, USA.”

In Methods section, the first sentence should read as “This study used data from a larger intervention study, Abriendo Caminos, is a multi-state, randomized-controlled, childhood obesity prevention program that is culturally-tailored for Mexican and Puerto Rican families.”

In Table 1, the unit of measurement (kg/cm2) was missed out for Mother’s BMI. Also, the text percentile is missed in the table note. Hence, the table note should read as “There are seven missing child BMI percentile measurements.”

The correct acknowledgement section is given below:
