|Abstract:||This 2003 study examined pre-school physical exam data on student health records of Kauai public school first-graders and found that 14.5% were at risk for overweight (between > or =85th and 94th percentile BMI-for-age), and 21.5% were overweight (>95 percentile BMI-for-age). The prevalence of overweight among Kauai students was twice that reported nationally for the same age group.|
