Nader, Philip R.; And Others
Journal of Health Education, v26 n2 pS27-35 Mar-Apr 1995
This study examined gender and ethnic trends in Mexican American and Anglo preschoolers at home and school using physical, physiological, dietary, activity, and socioenvironmental assessments. Height and total skinfolds showed significant ethnic differences, confirming that preschool represents an age of rapid habit and behavior development relevant to future chronic disease risk. (SM)
