Abstract

The school-going children are the most important segment of the society. Good nutrition of the children is an indispensable component of healthy life. It is also a determinant of healthy growth of mind and body. The tribal people in India have their own life styles, food habits, beliefs, traditions, socio-cultural and biological activities. Lack of proper health education, poverty, faulty feeding habits and irrational beliefs aggravate the health and nutritional status of these under privileged children in India.
