Abstract

A significant amount of India's population is known to suffer from malnutrition despite several efforts and ventures throughout the country. A comparative study on mothers ’perception towards their children's (school going) diet conducted in Barasat and Baranagar regions of Kolkata has proved the validity of this statement. The survey included basic questionnaires to a total of 203 mothers of school kids, categorized based on the ages of their children viz., Group A (2 to 3 years), Group B (3 to 4 years), Group C (4–5 years) and Group D (5 to 6 years). It was apparent from the study that mothers from the regions have insufficient knowledge about their kid's nutritional requirements. This study can be expected to bring about a positive response such that mothers should be encouraged to pay further attention towards their children's diet and healthy food habits to avoid this curse of malnutrition.
