Nutritional status and diet quality of nursing mothers on exclusive breastfeeding

The increase of obesity among the Brazilian female population in the late nineties led to an increase in the number of studies relating the postpartum period and breastfeeding with weight retention and, consequently, obesity in women. On the other hand, studies on food intake in the postpartum period using standardized instruments such as the 24-hour dietary recall and the Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ) could not be found in international databases. Nor were identified studies that used the Healthy Eating Index adapted to nursing mothers. A thorough assessment of the condition of the breastfeeding mother contributes to the quality of nutritional counseling during the nursing period. The aim of this study is to determine the nutritional status, identifying food consumption and the quality of diet of women who are breastfeeding exclusively.
