Abstract:

Food insecurity is a threat for the development and prosperity of any nation. The status of food security and nutrition in India is not up to the mark as per various reports. Global Hunger Index (GHI), 2017 is severely high, i.e. 31.4 which is a challenge for our country. All people in the country should get sufficient and healthy food all the time to achieve food security. GHI reflects that we could not reach at the level of food security. 43 out of 1000 children below 5 years are dying every year due to diseases or malnutrition. Hence, the present paper reviews data on food security and nutritional status in India and their probable reasons. All the government schemes should be monitored properly so that every person can get benefit and food security can be achieved.
