Per Capita Income (PCI) is considered as the most important factor deciding status of life. In this article it is shown that there is a marked difference in nutritional level of children (6-14 years) in different PCI group. For nutrition level BMI (Body Mass Index) has been considered. Statistically it has been shown that age-wise increment of BMI level is not proportionate for lower income group and these children has significantly lower BMI than that of higher and middle PCI group. In addition to this parental reaction to the healthcare problem, especially for lower income group, is also alarming.
