Abstract

Tribals live in the forests where they have an easy access to natural food especially to fruits, vegetables, some roots and animal food through hunting. Thus they are likely to have a better nutritional status compared to the others. But, the nutritional status is also affected by many other socio-ecological factors So an attempt was made to assess the nutritional status of the tribals living in the hilly areas of Maredumilli block which is the most interior tribal block under the Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDA) in Andhra Pradesh.
