Abstract

Food security is a basic right to food. The lack of food security results poverty and hunger. Food insecurity also leads to a situation of uncertainty and anxiety of the household members about the required consumption of nutritious food. It is the women of the household who suffer most due to household food insecurity. The consumption of diverse diet with micronutrient adequacy is most important for women at their reproductive age group. The study establishes a negative correlation between household food insecurity and women’s dietary diversity. The dietary diversity of women lowers in a food insecure household. Economic accessibility of household members could improve the diversity and adequacy of diet. Women’s empowerment, education and nutrition education is also important to acquire micronutrient from the consumption of diverse diet.

Key Words: Food security, dietary diversity, household, women,
micronutrient adequacy
