Was analyzed  60  children of both sexes, 30  aged between  6 and  10  years diagnosed with asthma and  30  non- asthmatic children at pediatric allergology ambulatory of the Hospital das Clínicas of Pernambuco. Anthropometric measurements of height and  weight of children, the distribution of percentiles of Body Mass Index (BMI) and food consumption estimated by applying the 24h  recall was obtained.  In the asthmatic group, 50% had normal weight and  43.3%  of non-asthmatic. The groups were homogenous  regarding  sex, age  and  BMI. In relation to the food consumption, the adequacy of Kcal was lower than expected  in 70% of the non-asthmatic children and  80% of asthmatic children. However, the protein consumption was above  of the expected  in 50% of non- asthmatic and 73.3% of asthmatic children.
