The present study concentrates on the nutritional status of the Oraon tribe of Jashpur district of Chhattisgarh. They heavily depend on their traditional agriculture for nutritional food stuffs. Their food is rich in carbohydrate but deficient in protein and vitamins and iron content, leading to poor nutritional status and poor health. Further, their nutritional status is directly related to the size of landholdings. The land ownership is qualification not only for access to different institutions facilitating agricultural development but also to nutrition availability.
