Meanwhile, a study released on Thursday reports that pre-school students are taller and heavier than they were 30 years ago. The findings were released by the non-profit association Happy Time, which compared the height, weight and sporting results of some 2000 children with the results of a similar test conducted in 1977. In terms of sports, children in Prague are reported to have improved greatly in the 33-year timeframe, while the performance of children in villages has decreased. Children of both genders regardless of location have grown by an average of two centimetres and weigh on average 0.5 kilograms more.
