Abstract

Children are the wealth of the nation. Special attention should be given by all concerned for meeting the needs and problems of children. School children constitute 20 per cent of the population in India. The school age is a dynamic period of growth and development as children undergo physical mental, emotional and social changes. Nutritional anthropometry is one of the important and simple methods of assessment of growth and development, especially in the rapidly growing children and hence the major objective of the study was to assess the degree of malnutrition through anthropometric measurements.
