Maternal body weight and diet quality, even pre-pregnancy, can affect the uterine environment, birth weight and the baby's subsequent health into adulthood. This article briefly discusses dietary and nutritional advice for women around pregnancy. However, some groups of women may be particularly vulnerable to suboptimal nutrition and therefore may require more targeted diet and nutrition advice. Specific nutrient issues among several vulnerable groups are discussed in this article.
