Impact of Food Based Approach to Improve Frequency and Nutrient Consumption among Tribal Women

Anangamathi.E, R. Varalakshmi

Low dietary diversity is a particular problem in low and middle income countries where the diets are frequently based on starchy staples and only small quantities of fresh fruits and vegetables. While starch staples are important source of energy in the diet but many of the important vitamins and minerals essential for a healthy diet are found in fruits and vegetables. The recent dietary transitions and low cost grains steered to condensed intake of nutrients among poor and tribal women. A multi staged random sampling was adopted with a sample of 100 young adult married tribal women in the age group of 20-25 years for intervention. An intense nutrition education intervention programme was planned using multiple channels. The scores were indicated using percentages; multiple scores were also tabulated. The improvements post intervention in consumption patterns was tabulated.
