Food habit as well as the frequency of taking major food items of both the urban and rural areas and a total of 200 households were selected for data collection from January to May, 2014. Collected data were summarized and scrutinized by using Excel 2007 format. Among the major food items, carbohydrate was the highest (260.9 g/capita/day) in rural areas whereas sugared beverage was the highest (235.46 g/capita/day) in urban areas. Fish products more consumed in rural area (158.67 g/capita/day) than in urban area (118.03 g/capita/day). Another, consumption of meat consumed more in rural area (133.47 g/capita/day) than in urban area (104.25 g/capita/day). The present study amplifies a good lesson for the other rural people of the country to increase cheaper food production like fish, poultry, ponds and gardens in order to increase family nutrition.Pages: 210-212 | 926 Views 9 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
