Abstract

An attempt has been made to study the correlation between the childhood food habit and its
impact on the health status in their adulthood. Those who were accustomed to fabricated food
items in childhood were prone to fatal diseases like diabetes, heart ailments, obesity, kidney
problems etc. in their adulthood. The population which indulged more in fabricated foods resided
in urban areas than in rural areas.
