INTRODUCTION: There is a general aggrement about considering growth curve as a great tool to reach world wide health. The importance of growth curve for health will become more clear when we consider the fact that growth impairment in the first years of the life will affect the growth of person through the rest.

RESULTS: At the date of birth mean weight, height and head circumference in males and females was 3.3 kg vs 3.2 kg, 49.3 cm vs 48.4 cm and 34.8cm vs 34.5cm respectively. In two years old children the mean increase in head circumference, weight and height was 2.6 cm, 2.5 kg vs 2.1 kg and 10 cm vs 9.8 cm respectively. In three years old boys and girls mean increase in weight and hight was 1.9 kg vs 2.4 kg and 9.9 vs 10.2 cm respectively.
