Author(s): Dr. Jiju N Vyas and Dr. Neha Tiwari
Nowadays India is undergoing an impressive economic growth accompanied by a very slow decline, almost stagnation, in malnutrition levels. In developing countries, studies on dietary patterns and their relationship with nutritional status are scarce. Over the years, some nutritional studies have been performed to explore different types of food consumed in various Indian regions, among different social samples. The aim of the present paper is to review and describe trends in food and nutrition intake patterns in the urban and rural parts of Ahmedabad. Survey was done on 300 respondents, 150 from Urban Ahmedabad and 150 from Rural Ahmedabad. Major aim of the study is to understand difference of food habits and nutritional status amongst urban and rural people.
