Health and nutrition are the most important contributory factors for human development. The study aimed to understand the dietary habits and nutritional status of women at village Wadad of Wardha district, Maharashtra. Data for this survey was collected by a structured questionnaire through interviewing and observation during CHCP from dept of Swasthavritta, Mahatma Gandhi Ayurveda College Hospital and Research Centre (DMIMS).50 subjects have been interviewed from village Wadad. According to survey, more than 85% of our volunteers are literate Around 14% volunteers took fruits daily but around 10% volunteers have chicken on weekly basis and 8% people took chicken on monthly basis. Less than 14% women drank milk daily and 12% women drank on weekly basis. The women from Hindu religious background are vegetarian in general. 38% women ate egg once in a week and 2% consume it daily. Majority of the women that is around 46% had information of diet through the community health workers. The health of women is linked to their status in the society. Generally, at household level cultural norms and practices and socio-economic factors determine the extent of nutritional status among women. The overall dietary condition of women is not good at all in Wadad and they are not getting sufficient diet as per daily needs. Countries, undergoing an economic transition, such as nations emerging in the international marketing competition, have to face new challenges in the treatment of nutrition related problem.
