On analysis of the data collected 4.6 % children were suffering from protein energy malnutrition, 11.5 % vitamin “A” deficiency, 13.3 % Vitamin “B” complex deficiency and 11.1 % from anaemia These various nutritional deficiency diseases are not just due to poor hygiene conditions and lack of nutritional food but also because the mother herself is suffering from anaemia and malnutrition during adolescence and child bearing age. They become trapped in an intergenerational cycle of ill health and poverty.
