The study was carried out to assess the adoption status of practices imparted under four training courses on ‘Food & Nutrition’. Out of total 88 trainees, a sample of 22 trainees was drawn by applying probability proportional to size (PPS) sampling method and data were collected personally from the selected trainees by using an interview schedule. The findings of the study revealed that all the trainees had adopted the practices of preservation of fruits and vegetables, preparation of recipes enriched with nutrients, out of the total twenty two practices imparted under training course on ‘Food & Nutrition’. A large majority of trainees had not adopted the practice of preparation of therapeutic diet and practice of use of medicinal plants. Majority of the trainees had medium level of extent of adoption of practices imparted under ‘Food & Nutrition’ and overall adoption status of training course was also medium. Age and education of trainees had negative and significant relationship with the extent of adoption of practices. It can be concluded that there is a need to promote the practice use of medicinal plants by creating awareness about benefits of medicinal plants. Nutritionist should create awareness regarding importance of therapeutic diet through different media.
