The present study was conducted to assess the impact of interventions viz., Horticulture and Nutrition education for raising the nutritional status of selected tribes in the Ranchi district of Jharkhand. Results of study revealed that there was significant gain in knowledge, change in attitude and enhancement in skill of beneficiaries after exposure to scientific information on nutrition and health through lecture, demonstrations and training. The intake of protective food like vegetables was much below the suggested recommendation, but significant enhancement in green leafy vegetable intake was observed after Horticulture intervention. It may be inferred that both interventions were effective and should be included in the programmes aiming to improve nutritional status of the community
