Abstract

Nutritional status at a young age is positively associated with an individual's total human capital accumulated. Higher levels of human capital are in turn strongly correlated with an individual's economic and social well-being. Health is one such dimension of human capital and improvements in children's nutritional status improve an individual's overall lifetime well-being. This paper examines the various child level, household level, and community level characteristics that determine health status among children.
