Abstract :

Cross sectional, representative at country level nutrition surveys of non pregnant and pregnant women has been carried out in the period 1985-2014. It was estimated the content of energy and nutrients in about 5000 non-pregnant and 2000 pregnant women daily diets. In each part of surveys the data about pattern nutrition were collected using 24 hour recall method. The findings were used as inputs for diagnosis and early identification of health risks of non-pregnant, pregnant women and their offspring. Main nutrition faults include; high prevalence energy from total fat, saturated fat and deficiency of n-3 PUFA; too high sodium, phosphorus intake from daily diet in pregnant and non-pregnant women; the lower than recommended or inadequate intake of iodine, iron, vitamin D; and calcium, fiber and folates. In conclusion, these nutrition surveys of women at 15-49 years are the most representative at national level in the last three decades: Without improvement of nutrition and state of nutrition of women population at procreative age, is impossible to reduce prevalence of low birth weight, macrosomia and other health disturbances caused by faulty nutrition. To strengthen public health system, it seems to arouse interest of the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Policy .
