It seemed worthwhile to investigate the relationship between various indexes of growth and body composition and dietary adequacy in preschool children. It seemed appropriate to select those anthropometric and biochemical measurements which could conceivably be obtained from preschool children in a nutrition survey.
The dietary intake and certain physical and biochemical measurements of 2 groups of 20 preschool children aged 3 ½ to 5 ½ years were investigated. Group I consisted of middle or upper income children and Group II, children from low income families.
