Abstract

As pregnancy imposes a great metabolic strain, it is essential that mother leads healthy life throughout child bearing stage. Nutrition has a potentially important role in maternal health and mortality. Pregnant and lactating women have been recognized as vulnerable groups from the health and nutritional point of view requiring additional nutritional supports. It is well known that the nutritional status of mother prior to and during pregnancy has a strong impact on the reproductive performance and on the health of both mother and the child.
