Maternal and Prenatal Nutrition

Maternal nutrition plays a significant role in the growth and development of fetal. Maternal nutrition refers to the nutritional requirements of women in the antenatal and postnatal period (i.e., when they are pregnant and breastfeeding to children) and also may refer to the pre-conceptual period (i.e., adolescence).
Prenatal nutrition can be defined as the nutrient recommendations before and during pregnancy period. Nutrition and weight management before and during pregnancy has an intense effect on the development of infants. This is a quite critical time for healthy development as infants totally rely on maternal stores and nutrient for optimal growth and health outcome later in life.
