Consumption of Dairy, Fruits and Dark Green Leafy Vegetables is Associated With Lower Risk of Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes (APO): A Prospective Cohort Study in Rural Ethiopia

Health and Systems for Health

Poor maternal nutrition during pregnancy is a leading modifiable risk factor associated with risks of adverse pregnancy outcomes (APO). Nevertheless, there is paucity of evidence if consumption of some food groups is associated with lower risk of APO, particularly in low-income settings. We aimed to determine whether consumption of some food groups is associated with lower risk of APOs such as: preterm birth (PTB), low-birth weight (LBW), and stillbirth in rural Central Ethiopia.
