    This paper analyzes changes in the nutrients intake, intra-household allocation and gender bias due to changes in agricultural productivity among four groups of rural households over six different seasons.

    The study utilizes household survey data collected from a village in Tamil Nadu, India.

    While the results are consistent with earlier findings that seasonality influences variation in the intake of nutrients, it is shown that subsistence agricultural households recover faster from poor crop yields than market oriented agricultural households in terms of nutrient intake.

    Agricultural labour households consumed lowest quantities of energy and protein in all the seasons with the highest degree of gender bias.
