To the Editor On behalf of my coauthors, I write to report errors in the statistical code used in our study, “Effect of a Breakfast in the Classroom Initiative on Obesity in Urban, School-aged Children: A Cluster Randomized Clinical Trial,” published online in JAMA Pediatrics on February 25, 2019.1 We reported the results of a cluster randomized clinical trial of 1362 grade school students at 16 Philadelphia public schools and found that a breakfast in the classroom initiative did not affect the combined incidence of overweight and obesity compared with offering students breakfast before school in the cafeteria. However, we also reported that the incidence and prevalence of obesity were significantly higher among students offered the breakfast in the classroom initiative after 2.5 years.
