Extract: Based on cross-sectional study, height, weight, arm circumference and triceps skinfold measurements of 4174 school children in Kuwait (6-17 years of age) were used to define the growth patterns and to assess the nutritional status. Results showed that school children in Kuwait have a normal rate of growth, and the growth pattern in 1984 has improved since 1957. The current nutritional status assessment revealed that about 65% of the children were normally nourished, 13% were malnourished and 22% were overweight. The nutritional history assessment indicated that 22% of the children had growth retardation. Malnutrition in terms of muscle areas was found in 31% of the children and the same percentage was found in terms of triceps skin-fold thickness.(author)
