Subject:question about datasets with both BMI and child welfare/abuse and neglect data

Hi, I have a student who is interested in well-being indicators, specifically weight, for children referred or, investigated or involved in Child Welfare Services. I know that NSCAW has height and weight variables but I was wondering if anyone knows of a dataset that could be primarily a health dataset with BMI of children but would also have some variable indicating child welfare involvement. I don’t know the datasets in health or public health well enough to guide her and I do want to encourage her to look first at existing data. Thanks in advance.
