Nutrition in Pregnancy and Lactation: A Report to the Children's Bureau reviews and interprets the current state of knowledge of the relationships between nutrition in pregnancy and the outcome of pregnancy for mother and infant. Public health statistics indicate that neonatal and infant mortality experience in the United States has not been as favorable in the most recent two decades as in some countries of Western Europe. Based on current nutrition concepts, this report served as a basis for the development of authoritative guidelines for the nutrition component of maternal and child health programs.
