The current SEWOH Nutrition Baseline Survey was conducted among women of reproductive age and infants and young children between the age of 6-23 months in India in January and February 2016. The main objective of this survey was to describe the nutrition situation among the target groups in rural areas of the districts Chhatarpur and Sheopur. Of special interest were Minimum Acceptable Diet (MAD) of infants and young children and Minimum Dietary Diversity-Women (MDD-W). Further, it aimed to examine linkages between dietary diversity and complementary feeding practices with living conditions as well as with knowledge and practice in regard to hygiene and nutrition.
