Women who received nutrition advice were more likely to eat larger quantities of food during pregnancy compared with women who did not, while women who received antenatal care and advice on nutrition before, during, and after pregnancy were more likely to eat a wider variety of foods. Access to health services was associated with frequency of eating in the previous 24 hours, while receiving advice on nutrition during pregnancy and after giving birth, and having contact with community health workers were associated with mothers’ dietary diversity during the same time period.
