In India,most of the farmer having least cultivated and lower income as a result low annual expenditure on food consumption, here in the study area they have medium to low level of cultivated land that most affect their nutrition security. Agriculture helps in ensuring good nutrition and good nutrition builds human capital which is also an input for agro-production creating a circular pathway between agriculture and nutrition. Undernourished women are often physically weak and unable to perform income-earning activities and household work to their full potential which create worse effects that extend through generations and lead to economic losses for families and countries. Malnutrition disempowers women by causing or aggravating infection, illness, lowering educational attainment and diminishing livelihood skills and drains family savings. Women play a role to save their family easily from nutrition problems with awareness and proper nutrition knowledge. Hence, their extent of knowledge has great importance for the social, economic and nutritional change of the country which, in turn, may contribute to improve the overall nutritional status of people in our country specially women. To recognize this issue conducted a study in the villages of Dhalaguri and Dhanghinguri of Cooch Behar-II block under Cooch Behar district in West Bengal. Purposive, multi-stage sampling procedures are followed in the present study. The district Cooch Behar and block Cooch Behar-II was purposively selected due to the availability of active farming women involved in agriculture and allied sectors. Out of the thirteen (13) Gram Panchayats of Cooch Behar-II block, two (2) villages were randomly selected namely Dhalaguri and Dhanghinguri for the study. Hundred number of respondent were interviewed taking fifty from each village. The study of socio-psychological variables revealed that all of the farm women had the knowledge and practice of including cereals in their diet because of their tradition majority of the farm women possess medium attitude towards nutrition.
