Abstract: In this paper, we considered each type of nutrient content and the price of food items as fuzzy sets. We proposed a fuzzy transportation problem in which hexagonal fuzzy number represents the cost, availability and demand of food items. The optimal solution for the well balanced diet plan has been obtained for the food items that have rich nutrient content with minimal cost.
