We conducted in-class written surveys of fourht to eighth grade children's eating and smoking behaviours in southwestern Ontario (n=870) and Charlottetown (n=423) in order to facilitate local school boards' and health units' planning of health education initiatives. Using chi-square analysis, we examined sex, grade, provincial and rural-urban differences in behaviours.
