Demand for nutrients in India, 1993-2004
The Deaton�Dreze (2009) explanation of a decline in calorie intake despite rapid economic growth in terms of lower calorie �requirements� is incomplete. This chapter fills this gap by taking into account the influences of food prices, growing affluence, urbanization and life-style changes and less strenuous activity levels. Insights into changing consumer preferences are given.
