Dietary intake of mothers and their partners during pregnancy

What does dietary intake look like in partners and pregnant women in Queensland?

This publication set out to explore dietary intake during pregnancy of the pregnant individual and their partner, in a subset of families participating in the Queensland Family Cohort pilot study.

It was found that approximately 30% of expecting mums and 15% of dads met Australian guidelines for vegetable intake and mums were more likely to met recommended guidelines if their partner did.
