Physical growth and development of an infant is determined by the quality of nutrition of the mother during lactation. In India, special attention is paid to the diet during lactation with nutritious supplements. This is with the plea that these foods result in producing more milk both qualitatively and quantitatively and would be helpful to the infant on feeding. However, socio -cultural background , religious beliefs, customs and tradition play a significant role in overall picture of dietary habits.
