One hundred forty eight antenatal women resisted from our peri-urban villages of Varanasi city were studied. Seventy were given nutrition supplementation while 78 were kept as matched control (non-supplemented). The supplementation containing 333 k cal, 11 gm protein and 5.6 mg. of iron, when distributed as “door step supervised feeding” for 120 day produced a significant rise in the anthropometrics parameter. There was a significant increase (p less than 0.001) in the birth weight, crown heel length as well as the head, chest and midarm circumferences of the newborn, proving a positive effect of nutrition supplementation on the anthropometrics parameters of the mother-child dyad.
