To assess the effect of an antenatal nutrition programme designed specifically for the local population, questionnaires on nutrition knowledge, attitudes to healthier eating and 4 d diet diaries were completed by women attening routine antenatal clinics.
Women who received the nutrition education programme were allocated into an Intervention Education Group whilst those women who did not were allocated into a Routine Education Group.
The results showed that knowledge about nutrition was significantly higher in the intervention group.
However, no significant differences were detected between the two groups for attitude variables or nutrient intake.
It is concluded, therefore, that the most-widely-read form of nutrition advice for pregnant women may have some impact on nutrition knowledge but has little effect on nutrient intake during pregnancy.
