||This paper investigates the demographic and socio-economic correlates
of utilization of integrated child development services (ICDS) among
children. Using data from the National Family Health Survey-3 (2005-
2006), an attempt has been made to find out differences in the level of
utilization according to social class and household economic conditions.
This paper found that the utilization was far from satisfactory cutting
across social class, household economic status and other attributes. The
article presents findings that could help evolve new strategies to
improve the utilization of ICDS services, and potentially reduce persistent
undernutrition in India.
