Abstract

The article tries to examine the cause and effect relation between poverty and nutrition from the various studies done in the past. It tries to evaluate whether there exists a hunger based nutrition trap. The relationship becomes graver when the two interact in tandem with one another creating a viscous circle. Few policy suggestions are given to make the poor self reliant.

Keywords: nutrition, hunger, poverty, BMI, calorie intake
