The effect of nutritional intake on outcome of pregnancy in smokers and non-smokers.
The relationship between nutrient intake and pregnancy outcome (adjusted birth weight and gestational age) was investigated in randomly selected non-smokers (n 97) and in heavy smokers (15+cigarettes/d) (n 72) booking for ante-natal care at a hospital in South London.
Weighed dietary intakes (7 d) were obtained at 28 and 36 weeks gestation.
Birth weight was adjusted for gestational age, maternal height, parity and sex of infant.
Compared with non-smokers, intakes of micronutrients and fibre were lower in smokers at both 28 and 36 weeks, and smokers reduced their intakes more in late pregnancy.
