dc.description.abstract To reduce undernutrition in India, significant reform in public policy interventions is required. An increase in economic growth and a declining poverty rate have not translated into an equivalent decline in undernutrition. Both gender and caste dynamics limit the impact of nutritional interventions in the long run, while policies need to be more sensitive to existing inequalities in the short run. For maximum nutrition effect, programmes like the NFSA need to focus on the first 1000 days of life - from conception to the end of the second year; and on the nutrition status of adolescent girls. en
