Scope:

The research is conducted on 94 apprentices working in woodwork sector and 94 students attending to 60th. Year Primary School which sum up to 188 children. It is found that children who start working in their adolescence ages and who are not nourished sufficiently seem to have physical development problems. The article suggests that to overcome malnutrition, conscious nutritional spending activities and distribution of milk and derivatives to primary schools free of charge should be supported.

An Excerpt from the Article:

In a research made it is found that the average height of students attending Ankara College was 168,2 cm. while the average in Çubuk Secondary School was 154,6 cm. and the difference is significantly high. In this study the students attending the school have average heights more than the ones attending to Çubuk Secondary School but less than the ones attending Ankara College. Though the ones working have average heights far more less than the students attending Çubuk Secondary School.This information shows that the nutrients taken by working children are transformed into working energy rather than physical development.
