Abstract: The World Health Organization (WHO) considers that more than 2 billion people worldwide suffer from vitamin and mineral deficiencies, primarily iodine, iron, vitamin A and zinc, with important health consequences. WHO publication goes on to emphasize that micronutrient malnutrition is not, as was widely assumed, only a problem of developing countries.

To evaluate the knowledge regarding micronutrient deficiency and its prevention among adolescent girls in experimental group before and after administration of planned teaching program. To compare the knowledge of adolescent girls in experimental and control group regarding micronutrient deficiency and its prevention. To find out the association between post-test knowledge of adolescent girls with selected demographic variables in experimental group. The study revealed that the mean post-test knowledge score ( 27.19) of adolescent girls were significantly higher than the mean pre-test knowledge score (18.86) on micronutrient deficiency and its prevention.80 % of adolescent girls were having good knowledge after administration of planned teaching programme in experimental group. Post-test knowledge score of experimental group and control group of adolescent girls were found to be statistically significant as calculated value of ‘t’ (6.68) df (58) t= 2.0017 at 0.05 level of significance. Hence research hypothesis H1, H2 was accepted and null hypothesis H01 and H02 was rejected. Hence null hypothesis H03 was failed to reject and research hypothesis H3 is rejected.
