There is increasing evidence that both diet and body composition can have a significant effect on lung function. In addition, weight itself does not tell us the whole story as body composition (for example, total body water or body fat) may be variable regardless of a child's weight.The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between lung function, body composition and immune/inflammatory factors. Children aged 6-11 years, with and without asthma, will be able to participate. We would like to include children with a variety of body shapes and sizes.
