  The present study was conducted to explore socioeconomic differences in the quality of diets and dietary trends in families living in Karachi. A total of 120 housewives (forty each from low, middle and high-income groups) were interviewed for this purpose. Quality of the diets was assessed by the representation of various food groups in the family`s diet. In low income group only 3% of families whereas 68 and 58% families from the high income group had all the crucial food groups (meat/pulses, milk and vegetable/fruit) represented in the family`s diet. Foods from fruit, meat and milk were most often missing from the daily diet groups. According to the mean number of food items for which change in consumption was reported the change did not appear to be extensive but socioeconomic difference in this regard was noticeable. Socioeconomic differences were noted also in the reasons for the dietary change. The most often mentioned factor considered to be responsible for the dietary change was `cost` by low income families and health by middle and high-income families.
