This tool is a semi-quantitative interview-administered food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) that retrospectively estimates nutrient intake at two critical time points during pregnancy. The FFQ is divided into three sections: the first focuses on dietary intake during the previous month; the second examines differences between current diet and diet during each trimester; the final section looks at supplement intake. The questionnaire has been validated in 2012.
Mothers were from a small urban community with low levels of literacy.
