Low intakes by 198 pregnant women of milk, fruit, and vegetables are reported: consumption of meat and bread and cereals was satisfactory. However, mean hemoglobin and hematocrit values were within acceptable ranges for these women, indicating that supplementation apparently compensated in part for poor dietary habits. Protein intake of the infants of these mothers was above recommendations, the advisability of which is questioned. Height and weight of the male and female infants at birth were above and below the 10th percentile, respectively. By the age of four months, however, all infants were equal to or above this level. Mean hemoglobin levels were above acceptable levels.
