Dear Collegues

I am once more floating this to anybody who can help. I am looking for information on the above subject i.e. Weight for age and Height for age charts in relation to School Health and Nutrition programme. We are still in the preparatory stage but almost through with the policy on School Health and Nutrition where I am supposed to put an appendix on Dietary guidelines and weight and height for age. Up date me on the general Dietary Guidelines as I could be behind on these too.

I will be glad to have something being used anywhere which we can adapt to suit the Zambian context.

Thank you
