Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is one of the most prevalent nutritional deficiencies in the world, and more than half of the population in India is anaemic. Iron deficiency anaemia cause impaired school performance, decreased work productivity and other adverse outcomes.[1] Adolescence, a period of rapid growth and development, is considered the most nutritionally vulnerable group.[2] The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of beetroot juice on serum iron, CBC and clinical features among adolescent girls with iron deficiency anaemia in selected areas of Dadra and Nagar Haveli. A quantitative research approach was used. A Quasi-experimental pretest post-test design was adopted among 60 adolescent girls with iron deficiency anemia by simple random sampling. The result showed that there is highly significant (p<0.001***) difference between control and experimental posttest level of serum iron and CBC. It shows that after the administration of beetroot juice, there was a significant improvement in the serum iron and CBC level of adolescent girls with at (p<0.001***).The posttest mean for clinical features of experimental group was 2.47 (SD 2.53) Whereas posttest mean for clinical features of control group was 5.87 (SD 2.08). Thus the study concluded that beetroot juice was effective in the adolescent girls with iron deficiency anaemia.
