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.

          The weight gaining pattern in children referring to health centers of
   Kabodarahang is same as other parts of country but the low weight is less
