Abstract: 

Weight gain assessment is a route to survey health and nutritional status of children the best way of approaching is using the growth chart which is applied throughout the country. Purpose of our study is assessment of weight gain pattern in children age 0-24 month old referring to health centers of Kabodarahang city.
This is a descriptive cross-sectional study on health charts of all children less than 2 years. Total numbers of 652 were divided in 3 groups. 0-6 months (GI), 7-12 months (GII) , 13-24 months (GIII), and they were designed qualitatively as "Desirable" , "Undesirable" , "Improving" and "Improved" status.
The most desirable growth pattern was group 1 (0-6 m) and undesirable one in group II (7-12 m). From total number of 652 children in this study 6.4% had low weight.
