Operation Timbang

I didn't know they also have it in preschools (kala ko elementary lang). Last Friday, the kids lined up to have their weight and height taken. Gabbie weighs 34 pounds and stands 41 inches now. The teachers did not tell us why they did that and what to do if the kids turned out to be underweight, overweight or small for their age.

As for Gabbie, as far as I know, she's in the lower threshold of the normal weight range for her age. But she's a happy and active kid and she eats well and she seldom gets sick. Her pedia said there's nothing to worry about but I might consider asking her about "pagpupurga" as someone suggested.
