A Pilot Study on the Assessment of Nutritional Status In The School Going Children (6-11 Years) In Rural Areas of Coonoor, Nilgiris District

R. Bhargavi, D. Sri Devi


Abstract: Malnutrition is India-s silent emergency and among India-s greatest human development challenges. The crisis of malnutrition is real and its persistence has profound and frightening implications for children, society and the future of the human kind. Malnutrition affects children-s chances of survival, increases their susceptibility to illness, reduces their ability to learn and makes them less productive in later life. In this study, a group of 300 respondents consisting of both sexes were selected and subjected to anthropometric, biochemical and clinical analysis. The results were compared and discussed based on gender as well as age distribution.
