Author(s): Dr. Tanzila Hamid and Dr. Naheed Vaida
The present study was undertaken to access the nutritional status of gujjar and bakerwal women of Kashmir. The sample for the study comprised of 410 Scheduled Tribe women (Gujjar and bakkerwal) in the reproductive age (18-45 years) from four districts of Kashmir i. e Anantnag, Baramulla, Gandarbal and Srinagar. Nutritional status of respondents was evaluated by taking Anthropometric measurements (i.e height and weight, BMI) and conducting dietary survey (24 hour food recall). The results of the study revealed poor nutritional status among them as majority of respondents were undernourished and had inadequate nutrient intake.
