Aims: To estimate dietary intakes of folate and vitamin B12 (vital
nutrients during the early stages of human development) in women
of childbearing age (15 40 years).
Study design: Baseline data were collected from 1668 women
recruited to an intervention trial.
Materials: An interviewer-administered food frequency questionnaire
(101 items, 15 food-groups) was developed to obtain intakes
in the past month. Data were recorded as frequencies ranging
from three times/day to once/month or less. Daily folate and
B12 intakes were calculated, assuming standard portion sizes, and
using published nutrient-content tables and (for GLVs) laboratory
Outcome measures: Adequacy of intakes according to ICMR Recommended
Daily Allowances (RDAs; folate 100 mg/day; B12 1 mg/day).
