Abstract:
This study was designed to evaluate the effect of nutrigarden on socioeconomic status of tribal families and especially for total consumption of vegetables and total income generated through the implementation of nutrigarden in tribal families (n = 20). Malnutrition is the common problem in tribal families due to their lack of knowledge about food intake, lack of food supply, family economic background, family size, socioeconomic status, low income and family problems. We have implemented nutrigarden programme to cultivate vegetables to increase their family income and consumption of food. The income was increased drastically along with vegetable consumption ranged from Rs 770 to 12000, from 33.0 ± 2.26 to 88.0 ± 2.08 after the nutrigarden implementation as per month. Awareness have been increased about nutrition among the tribal families. The impact of nutrigarden on socioeconomic status of tribal families was clearly observed. An education and family income are the major reasons for socioeconomic status of tribal families.
