The National Institute of Nutrition (NIN), Hyderabad, a prime research body under the apex body for biomedical research, Indian Council of Medical Research has been recognized globally for its eminent studies on diverse subjects of nutrition, with a special focus on protein–energy malnutrition. The first edition of “Dietary Guidelines for Indians-Manual” was published by NIN in 1998 and since then has undergone many changes till the year 2011. A decade later, the updated version of “Dietary Guidelines for Indians-Manual” has been introduced by NIN in 2020 that revised the decade-old standards on reference body weight, height, age, and recommended dietary allowances for an Indian adult which will be serving as a valuable source of information for all.
