Growth and development are the most important biological sensors to detect the state of health in the individual and in the population. The strategy for implementing continuous monitoring in the evolution of these two parameters must be carefully evaluated. The interaction between growth, development and education is responsible for the socio-cultural formation of the individual and his integration into society. Any measure of measuring the variable can be used, but some are more advantageous such as the rate of growth per unit in preterm and low birth weight.
