Abstract:

This study was an attempt to present the comprehensive picture of trends in consumption of milk and milk products along with animal foods such as meat, fish, poultry and eggs in Kumaon region of Uttarakhand. Milk and milk products were one of the main items in the meal of people of Kumaon region. Its routinely consumption was as high as among 82% population for milk during 1950 but the reduction in frequency of milk and curd consumption among 55 year and above age group was from 82% population to 48% of population and 64% population to 30% of population respectively from 1950 to 2000 onwards. The reduction in routinely/daily consumption of butter milk was much more, which reduced from 57% population in 1950 to 7% population in 2000 onwards. Ghee also occupied major place in the meal of elderly and 81% population were using it routinely which was continue in next decade also. But its consumption percentage started to sharply decrease from 1990 and reached to nearly 38% after 2000 onwards. Age groups between 35 - 55 and 15 - 35 were also using these products but their routinely consumption was lesser in compare to elderly population (55 year and above age group). Likewise routinely butter consumption decreased sharply from 33% to 4% among elderly and 22% to 5% for 35-55 year age group and 12% to 2% for 15 -35 age group. Routinely consumption of flesh food was negligible among 55 years and above age groups and 15-35 year age groups.
