The age between 6 and 10 years in girls and between 6 and 12 years in boys is a period of slow, stable growth in which bodily changes occur gradually. For this reason, this period is referred to as a latent growth period . Up to around the age of 9 or 10 years, a child’s weight and height increase annually, on average, by around 2.3–2.7 kg and 5 cm, respectively. As children grow, differences between the sexes become apparent in weight and height increases, given that girls grow faster from around the age of 11, whereas boys grow faster from around the age of 13.
