Abstract:

The study was carried out under OFT (on farm trial) at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Birauli, Samastipur to see the impact of iron rich food supplementation, made out of locally available foods materials, on hemoglobin level of poor rural pregnant women and adolescent girls who are our future giver. Two type of iron rice food supplements one made up of rice flake and jaggery and other of roasted Bengal gram and jaggery were used. The study revealed that pregnant women and adolescent girls were taking insufficient amount of iron which is an alarming message for them. It is clear that they are the future giver and low hemoglobin level of these vulnerable groups will affect health of our coming future. Insufficient iron intake is very harmful for them. They should be encouraged to consume sufficient amount of iron. There should be nutrition intervention and health related programmes for them.
