Indian cuisine rests heavily on the usage of flours. One of the staple food items in most Indian households is the chapathi. Wheat flour has enjoyed quite a lot of attention on the Indian plate. A multigrain flour mix combines various grains and pulses to create a tasteful mixture and is therefore high in complex carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals. A total of 64 women of 20-45 age groups were selected from three villages in Telangana state and assessed the Knowledge, Attitude and Practice levels of Ready To Use multigrain mixes before and after nutritional education with the help of structured questionnaire. Results showed that nutrition education enhanced knowledge, attitude and practice levels of subjects. The impact of nutrition education clearly indicated 1 per cent significant difference in knowledge levels and 5 per cent significant difference in attitude as well as practice levels of the subjects before and after nutrition education intervention. Nutrition education is the best method to motivate the people towards healthy lifestyles.
