The intent of collecting and analyzing this data is to screen our children to determine the prevalence of overweight and obesity in Indiana children and the pattern of overweight over time. Data collected will be used to create policies and programs that promote healthier environments for our Indiana children. The height and weight data collected will not be used for diagnosing any individual student with a weight problem.
