Dietary patterns of pregnant and nursing Aboriginal mothers in the Kimberley region of Western Australia



Proceedings of the Nutrition Society of Australia 14: 156



Intake of nutrients and energy before and after parturition by mothers of 49 Aboriginal infants born in remote communities in the Kimberley region of Australia was studied. Relative to Australian recommended dietary allowances (RDA) intakes of protein, energy, iron, thiamin, riboflavin and ascorbic acid by pregnant women and during the postnatal period were adequate. Intake of calcium during pregnancy was less than 60% of the RDA.
