The study, which was based on 400 children aged between 7 and 11 years, also found that around 13% of the children are underweight and suffer from malnutrition. Of the total, 35% of children have a curved upper back, and 27% showed signs of a bent spinal column, owing to a wrong posture during the performance of their daily activities and also as they carry their school bag the wrong way, the report said.
