Abstract

A great asset in our present nutritional situation is the remarkable ability of the poor Indian mother to undergo the period of great stress and strain of pregnancy where the woman has to meet the needs of the foetus and adjust herself to the changes occurring in her own system and later to breast feed her infant for prolonged periods, some times extending to nearly two years. But for this the picture regarding the nutritional status of our poor infants and children would be much worse than what it is today.
