This study compared the results of 1994 and 2012 dietary surveys on nutrition status and meal content, respectivelyconducted in 20 children under five years of age from N village in rural Nepal. Compared to children from the 1994 survey, thosefrom the 2012 survey had better nutrition statuses, with a higher proportion consuming meals comprising a grain dish, a vegetabledish, and a main dish (e.g. meat, eggs, or soy-beans), and a higher proportion consuming animal products, particularly meat. Takentogether, these results suggest that nutrition status improvement is possible, and furthermore indicate the possibility that a nutritiontransition was beginning. Therefore, it is thought that additional nutrition education focusing on the prevention of lifestyle-relateddiseases may be necessary.
