The effect of prenatal food supplementation on child growth in northern Bangladesh

Insufficient food intake during pregnancy is a major problem in many developing countries. Bangladesh has among the highest rates of maternal and child undernutrition globally. In the rural areas of Bangladesh, poverty is three times higher than in urban areas, women are less likely to access antenatal and postnatal services, and children suffer from higher rates of chronic malnutrition. In Bangladesh, one in five children are born with a low birth weight and one in three pregnant women are undernourished. Maternal undernutrition increases the risk of poor foetal growth.
