Both purposive and random sampling techniques were adopted while selecting the samples and the sampling sites. Self- designed pre-tested dietary behavior schedule was administered among the parents and the caretakers of the children. There was a significant difference at.01 level, when the mean scores of mealtime behavior of both institutionalized and non-institutionalized subjects were compared.
