Abstract: 

Corruption Diet and nutritional status of 500 female farm labouors (250 urban slum and 250 rural) were assessed by anthropometry, diet and nutrient intake. Diet survey was carried out by using 24 hours recall method. The findings of the study shows that height and weight from both the areas and age group were ranged between 150.38 + 5.26 to 151.85 + 6.08 cm and 47.10 + 8.37 to 51.36+ 9.19 kg and they were little bit lesser than NCHS standards while BMI (20.14 +3.24 to 22.76 + 3.99kg/m2) and WHR (0.83 + 0.09 to 0.86 + 0.06) were in line with NCHS standards. The values for height, weight, BMI, MUAC, waist circumference, hip circumference and waist – hip- ratio as per area and different food habits of selected female farm labouors ranged between 150.33 + 5.51 to 151.56 + 6.09 cm, 48.42 + 8.70 to 50.56 + 9.25 kg, 21.4 + 3.58 to 22.36 + 3.97 kg/m2, 25.10 + 2.73 to 26.14 + 4.33 cm, 72.22 + 8.02 to 75.59 + 9.82 cm, 86.53 + 7.81 to 89.84 + 9.07 cm and 0.82 + 0.05 to 0.86 + 0.06 respectively. Mean food intake was inadequate as compare to ICMR recommendations in all food groups except sugar and jaggery. Statistically non-significant difference was observed between two age groups .Nutrient intake of female farm labouors was below when compare with RDA for energy, calcium, iron and β-carotene where as equal to or more for protein, fat and Vit.C.
