The present study was undertaken to assess the Level of Awareness among rural mother’s with respect to Nutritional care Practices for children in Mahabubnagar district of Telangana state. A total sample of 60 rural mothers of children in the age range of 0-3 years were selected for the study. Ex-post facto research design was used for the study. A self-designed interview schedule was developed to study the socio-demographic characteristics and awareness levels on nutritional care practices.
