  Riboflavin deficiency is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies, which has detrimental effects on physical growth of children. In the present study, the nutritional status of this vitamin in primary school children in Rafsanjan was investigated. In this cross-sectional study, the subjects were selected using multistage cluster random sampling and the general demographic data, including age and gender were collected by questionnaires. Urinary riboflavin level was measured as the indicator of riboflavin status. A moderate to severe riboflavin deficiency was found in half of the participants with a higher prevalence of severe deficiency in girls (p<0.005). Mean±SD of urinary riboflavin in male and female students were 392±381 and 421±546 μg g-1 creatinine, respectively. Based on findings of this cross-sectional study, riboflavin deficiency is a serious nutritional problem in primary school children, especially among female students.
