Abstract: The present study was aimed to assess the nutritional awareness of IX standard students in Coimbatore district. The survey method was employed in this investigation. 300 IX standard students from the eight different schools in Coimbatore district were selected using the stratified random sampling method. A self-designed and well-structured questionnaire was distributed randomly to the IX standard students. Demographic details were also recorded. The questionnaires which are completely filled were obtained and further analyzed. The mean scores obtained by the IX standard students from the nutritional awareness scale were calculated in order to find out the significant difference between the level of nutritional awareness among the IX standard students. Results showed that there is a significant difference between the rural and urban IX standard students in their nutritional awareness. And also the study indicated that there is a lack of adequate nutritional awareness among IX standard students. Hence, the study revealed an urgent need to educate not only the students but their families as well. Due to the importance of nutrition and its impact on health the study suggests that nutrition courses should be made as the part of the school curriculum.
