The anthropometrics profile of 986 school children was studied in Block Ganderbal – a rural field practice area of Govt. Medical College Srinagar. The sample comprised of 14 (approx.25%) educational institutions selected randomly. 605(61.36%) were male children and 381 (38.64%) were female children. Their weights, standing heights and mid-arm circumference were recorded and compared with I.C.M.R. estimates. Heights of both the sexes were less than the All India Standards and the difference was statistically significant in females (p<0.05) and highly significant in males (p<0.0005). However, the weight and mid arm circumference estimates in both the sexes were in agreement with I.C.M.R. estimates. Thus although there was evidence of stunted growth, the severity of present episode of malnutrition was less .An attempt has also been made on nutritional grading.
