For a healthy body, it is necessary to consume a nutritious and balanced diet, which not only nourishes the body but also keeps it healthy by preventing various diseases, because nutritious and balanced food contains all those nutrients which protect our body from becoming malnourished. When we talk about the health of children, it becomes necessary to take special care of their eating habits. It is true that poverty is a major cause of malnutrition, but lack of awareness about nutrition and the eating habits of children are also considered to be the cause of malnutrition. Many times the family has sufficient capacity to provide food, but despite availability of resources, children become victims of malnutrition due to their eating habits, it is very important to take care of this. The economic condition of the family also completely affects the level of malnutrition. Through the presented paper, an attempt has been made to explain that the eating habits of children and the economic condition of the family are related to malnutrition.
