Abstract:

Tribal populations are socio-economically disadvantaged compared to other population groups. They have different health problems owing to the variability in their geographical, socio-economic development and cultural characteristics. A cross sectional survey was carried out by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Rastakuntubai to assess the dietary pattern and nutritional status of tribal population in selected tribal villages of Vizianagaram district of Andhra Pradesh. In Vizianagaram district there are about 8 tribal mandals having different types of tribes like Jathapu, Savara, Gadaba, Kondadora, Gondu, Mali etc. The study was done in four tribal villages Durbili, Suryanagaram, Shantinagaram, and Vanjarapuguda to identify the Nutritional status of the tribal families and studying the dietary pattern of the tribal families. The sample comprised of 450 tribal people. Results revealed that children below 6 years were formed to be undernourished, adolescent girls found to be anaemic, pregnant and lactating women were found to be underweight and anaemic due to micronutrient deficiencies in their diets.
