  1. High prevalence of overweight and short stature among head start children in Massachusetts.

    Article - En anglais

    The Head Start Program measures children's heights and weights to screen for growth problems such as obesity, wasting, and short stature.

    At present, little public health use is made of these data.

    In this paper, the authors present serial cross-sectional nutrition surveillance data from Massachussets Head Start Program.

    Nonrandom samples of local Head Start Programs provided annual screening data from 1988 to 1991 on an average of 2,664 children per year.

    Height and weight measurements were compared with National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) reference populations.
