<jats:title content-type="abstract-subheading">Design/methodology/approach</jats:title>
<jats:p>For the present study, 60 underweight and anemic seven-nine-year-old school children were selected according to the World Health Organization (WHO) classification and divided into two groups, i.e. experimental (30) and control (30).

<jats:title content-type="abstract-subheading">Findings</jats:title>
<jats:p>The food and nutrient intake increased with increased percent nutrient adequacy and sharp increase (<jats:italic>p</jats:italic> ≤ 0.05) was noticed in cereal, fat and sugar after supplementation. Average height, weight, body mass index and mid-upper arm circumference increased, with 3.56 and 0.87 per cent gain in weight and height (<jats:italic>p</jats:italic> ≤ 0.05) respectively. Hemoglobin levels increased from 10.6 to 11g/dl with little improvement (<jats:italic>p</jats:italic> ≤ 0.05) in proteins, albumin and other indices of blood profile and nine subjects fell in non-anemic category.</jats:p>

<jats:sec>
<jats:title content-type="abstract-subheading">Research limitations/implications</jats:title>
<jats:p>The diets of both groups were not controlled, which might have varied the results.</jats:p>

<jats:p>Garden cress-seed-enriched biscuits were able to have a positive impact on the nutritional profile of malnourished and anemic school children.</jats:p>
