Author(s): Dr. Varsha S Zanvar and Pradnya D
A study was conducted to assess the influence of socio-economic parameters on food and nutrient intake of 300 women of Nanded district of Marathawada region of Maharashtra state. Food intake was assessed by 24 hours’ recall method. Nutrient intake was calculated on the basis of food intake using the nutritive value of foods. The results of the study revealed that irrespective of different factors like area, age, food habit and family income the mean food intake was very low in all groups compared to recommended dietary allowances. Non-significant difference was noted for all food groups when compared among groups. Nutrient intake was found to low when compared with RDA except fat. However, iron intake was almost equal to RDA in all groups.
