Many factors affect the growth, nutrition, health and general well being of school children. It is necessary to secure data in order to study these factors and to determine, if possible, their relative merit.
The purpose of this study was: first, to collect, tabulate and analyse data which would add information to the knowledge of seasonal height weight variations in growth of school children; second, to study the seasonal diet as a possible factor in influencing seasonal growth; third, to study the food and health historics and dietary habits of these children; fourth, to determine their present physical condition as shown by dental and medical examinations.
