The purpose of this study was to determine and compare the nutritional status of children aged 8-11 years attending primary school among two tribes (Khasi and Garo) of Meghalaya. Anthropometry method was used in the study. Two basic variables (height and weight) and a single derived variable (body mass index‐ BMI) were utilized. All the anthropometric measurements were taken following standard techniques. Twenty four hour recall method was used for dietary assessment. First degree mild malnutrition (40.89%) and third degree severe malnutrition (3.16%) were more prevalent in West Garo tribe children when compared to East Khasi tribe children. Varied nutritional deficiency such as riboflavin, thiamine, Vitamin C and D and iron were observed in both the tribes of Meghalaya primary children.
