Three race of the Gorgan rural such as Fars (native), Torkman and immigrants of sistani have been compared. Among 118 Gorgan rural, 20 of them were chosen by systematical simple random way. All children of 0-6 years old were studied. On the whole, 2890 children were studied. Results showed that 1) in the first six-month after birth, 86.1% children are nourished by breast milk. The Torkman races have significant statistical differences with Fars (native) and Sistani races (p<0.05), 2) 34.6% children of Gorgan rural have begun extra feeding from sixmonth age. The highest and the lowest ratio have been observed in sistani (40.1%) and Fars (native) children (30.5%) respectively, 3) in the Gorgan children, the rate of the breast-feeding is higher than that was reported for whole the country. The children of the sistani race who live in Gorgan rural should be more supported from the nutritional viewpoint and the education of the breast-feeding must be considered more than the others.
