BACKGROUND
in Chile, the increase of childhood obesity has become a pandemic, and it has become a major public health problem.

OBJECTIVE
the purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of malnutrition in children-adolescents and to analyze its association with cardiometabolic risk and physical performance.

MATERIAL AND METHODS
