Summary: In the northern region, it is believed that there are more people with high size. However, continuous genetic mixing and the migration phenomenon seems to have affected the prevalence of high stature with low. Objective. Study food and socio-economic factors associated differential way to the high stature (TA) preschool children in Ciudad Juárez in comparison to low size (TB). Methods. Retrospective cross-sectional study in 295 children < 5 years of Ciudad Juárez. Results. The prevalence of TA and TB was 4.1 and 11.2, higher than the State average. With the exception of the proportion of parents of Chihuahua and have received food allergen in the first year, all the other variables (more negative nutritional deviations and household food insecurity but minor economic perception) justified the presence of low stature. Both the high and low size were associated with lower proportion of children fed exclusively to the womb. Conclusions. Socioeconomic factors and food studied seem to have influence on the stature of children, same that can be directly modifiable by the parents or the economic system.
