The diet of 9 to yr-olds should be rich in calcium to ensure an adequate deposit in bones, which may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in old age12, In comparison to adults, besides a greater need for calcium intake to support bone accretion, the consejeria nutritional expenditure by children on physical activity is higher, they have a greater energy requirement per kg body mass, earlier fatigue, lower sodium and chloride losses via sweat, and show greater thermoregulatory strain at any level of hypohydration Body composition is an important indicator of health status in children and adolescents19, Studies on the relationship between body composition and physical fitness in children showed that excessive fatness had a negative impact on the performance of the long jump, sprint or bent arm hang, among other activities Improving the nutritional status and physical fitness of children is a key public health objective to enhance the well-being of children consejeria nutritional reduce the risk of future disease.
