Notes
  • The main attention on the food front in lndia's five year plans has been focussed on the question of undernutrition rather than malnutrition. This preoccupstion with the quantitative instead of the qualitative aspect of food problem is not difficult to understand, in view of the inadequate domestic output and low per capita consumption of all foods, low average calorie intake, and evidence of widespread "hunger" brought out by diet surveys undertaken in different parts of the country. However, the basic approach of the Planning Commission to the question of nutrition, as indicated briefly in the second plan document, is based on a preconceived notion that " it will not be possible t o provide nutrition at optimum levels to everybody". [CDS WP NO 4]
