Paper Title
Prevention of Under-nutrition in Women with Soya Multigrain and Iron Based Oral Nutritional Supplements: An Experimental Study
  Mrs. Reena Barai,  Dr. Nanda Gurwara

The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of soya multigrain and iron based oral nutritional supplements in management of undernutrition in women. This study was conducted on 100 malnourished women of Chhattisgarh. The age range of selected subjects was 18-30 years. The criterion for selection of malnourished women was based on BMI classification in which BMI of less than 18.5 was considered undernourished. The selected subjects were further divided into experimental and control group with equal number of subjects in each group. In this pre-post experimental design, supplementation of soya multigrain along with iron and folic acid was given to selected subjects for three months. The anthropometric measurements height and weight was assessed prior to commencement of study period. Weight was again measured after three months. The BMI was again calculated after the study period of three months. BMI classification revealed that under nutrition in women was reduced considerably after supplementation of three months of soya multigrain panjiri along with iron and folic acid tablet. The under nutrition in women subjects representing control was not altered so much after three months of study period. It was concluded that soya and iron based oral nutritional supplements can be used as therapeutic measure to control under-nutrition in women of reproductive age.
