The results of a series of nutrition status surveys conducted among school children from 4 racial groups in Pretoria indicated that the growth attainment of White children exceeded that of Bantu, Coloured and Indian children in all age-groups studied, the differences between the non-White groups, however, being seldom statistically significant, particularly in the case of children of 7 - 11 years (the upper age-limit studied being 15 years).
