The most crucial segment of the population from the point of view of quality of future generation is today's young girls who are just on the threshold of marriage and motherhood, Iron deficiency anaemia is a problem of serious public health significance, given its impact on psychological and physical development, behaviour and work performance. Iron deficiency occurs when an insufficient amount of iron is absorbed to meet the body's requirements. This insufficiency may be due to inadequate iron intake, reduced bioavailability of dietary iron, increased needs for iron when prolonged.
