Abstract The study from September 1958 to June 1960 in the municipalities of Tilburg, in Brabant, and Leeuwarden, Sneek and Franeker in Friesland was on 480 children 8 years old from the lowest income classes and included children ranking second in a small family, and children ranking second and fifth in a large family.

The survey covered food pattern, haematological analysis, somatometric data, bone age and bone density, and environment to detect any differences in nutrition and health between the three groups.

Differences were most frequently pronounced in Tilburg between children ranking second in a small and large family. In Leeuwarden, Sneek and Franeker food intake and health of children ranking fifth in large families were poorer than in the other groups. Family size and ranking-number were both important determinants of nutritional status but social and economic conditions and household management also played a role.
