India Slide 2: INTRODUCTION Nutrition is an area that requires special attention during pregnancy, particularly during the second and third trimesters. The foetus needs nutrients and energy to build new tissue and the women needs nutrients to build her blood volume and maternal stores. There is an increased demand for energy and for almost energy nutrient type. Most nutrient requirements can be met through careful attention to diet, although there are several nutrients including iron that require supplementation during pregnancy. Most minerals can be obtained from a varied diet without Supplementation even during pregnancy. Slide 3: INTRODUCTION (contd..) It is important for pregnant women to get sufficient amounts of minerals to prevent deficiency in the growing foetus and maternal stores. Iron is necessary for the formation of haemoglobin; therefore, it is essential to the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. If a women’s diet is iron deficient during pregnancy her red blood cell volume will increase by only 18% whereas adequate supplementation of iron results in a 30% increase in red blood cell volume. Slide 4: Chapter I Cont. . . NEED OF THE STUDY Nutritional status and the nutritional intake of the mother during pregnancy have profound effect on the growth of the foetus. If the mother’s intake of nutrient is not sufficient that limits the supply of nutrients to the foetus this can lead to foetal malnutrition. In India anaemia is a relatively common complication of pregnancy. Pregnant women need iron to support, their enlarged blood volume and to provide for placental and foetal needs. In an adequate diet the daily iron content is 10-15mg of which 10-20%, is absorbed, so other sources of iron are needed to fulfil the needs of pregnancy. Slide 5: Chapter I Cont. . . NEED OF THE STUDY (contd..) The best dietary sources of iron are meat, fish and poultry and vegetarians can obtain iron from plant foods such as legumes, dark green leafy vegetables. Iron-fortified cereals and whole grain breeds and cereals, but the iron is not as well absorbed as iron from meats. Eggs are also a valuable source for those who include them (Rath. 2007). Slide 6: STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM A comparative study to assess the dietary practices of antenatal mothers with anaemia and with other antenatal mothers in a selected hospital. Chapter I Cont. . . Slide 7: OBJECTIVES To assess the dietary practices of antenatal mothers in a selected hospital.
To assess the dietary practices of antenatal mothers with anaemia in a selected hospital.

Nursing education need to be strengthened to enable nursing students to know about current knowledge on dietary practices among antennal mothers utilize evidence based finding (self instructional module) to promote diet during pregnancy.
Nursing curriculum should include more lessons on customs and belief to provide sound knowledge to the nursing students for this will help them provide culturally complementary nursing care to their client. Slide 43: NURSING PRACTICE Chapter VI Cont. . . Nurses play an important role in promotive, curative and preventive aspects of health care system. Nurse should be provide booklets on diet to antenatal mothers to prevent anaemia.
The nurses working in the hospital should provide health education on continuous basis. They should give planned teaching.
Nurses should motivated the mothers to take well balanced diet including Iron rich foods if normal and anaemic. Slide 44: NURSING ADMINISTRATION Chapter VI Cont. . . The nursing administration in the hospital should have facilities for education to antenatal mothers such as flash cards, chart, VCD and separate place for education mothers in OPD. They should provide guidelines and modules on diet for anaemia during pregnancy.
In-service education must be provided to all nurses to update their knowledge about dietary practices on anaemia during antenatal period.
Modules on diet during pregnancy and can be distribute to mothers in antenatal OPD. Slide 45: NURSING RESEARCH Chapter VI Cont. . . Generalization of the study results can be made by further replication on large samples.
The study can be done in community set up.
A comparative study on knowledge regarding diet for anemic during antennal period to be done between rural and urban population.
Experimental study can be done on the effect of health education on diet for anaemia including balanced diet for antenatal mothers with a control groups. Slide 46: CONCLUSION Chapter VI Cont. . . The present study assessed the dietary practices of antenatal mothers with anaemia and other normal antenatal mothers with semi structured interview questions in antenatal OPD, RMMCH. The finding shows that during 1st trimester Group I mothers not taken extra diet because of vomiting but in Group II all the mothers took extra diet in all trimesters. Slide 47: CONCLUSION (contd..) Group I
Common food items taken by Group II mothers are 2-times meals, 1-2 glass of milk, I time dates, extra supplement of boost, horlicks, nutrition ball, fruits like apple, sappota, pomegranate, banana, grapes, all type of green leafy vegetables, jaggery daily, but not taken ragi, ghee, soya daily in their diet. Slide 48: CONCLUSION (contd..) Group II

Slide 49: CONCLUSION (contd..) Non-vegetarian mothers taken egg, chicken, fish every week frequently, but mutton and liver taken monthly once only in both group mothers avoided some food and fruits such as papaya, and pin apple they believed it may cause abortion, and mango and chicken may cause heat for mothers and foetus. Non anemic mothers avoided fruits they believed that it may cause cold for baby, mothers in both groups no one did worm infestation during their pregnancy. Slide 50: RECOMMENDATIONS Chapter VI Cont. . . Home visit can be done by nurse to provide individualized teaching and counseling on diet for anaemia during pregnancy.
The mass media can be used to educate the public on the importance of well balanced diet and routine health education on diet for anaemia during antenatal period should be done in a antenatal OPD.
Initiation of well balanced diet including iron rich diet can be encouraged in antenatal by educating mothers about a well nutritious diet regarding its benefits. On the basis of the study findings the following recommendations have been made for further study. Slide 51: THANK YOU
