Description/Abstract

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 analysis. Outcome measures: Adequacy of intakes according to ICMR Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs; folate 100 mg/day; B12 1 mg/day).
