Abstract

Pregnancy in Brazilian adolescents has increased in recent years. In 2000, 26% of children born in the Public Health System in Brazil were from adolescent mothers (Ribeiro et al. 2000). Brazilian women of reproductive age appear to have a high frequency of inadequate dietary intake for several micronutrients, especially during pregnancy and lactation (Borghi et al. 1997; Trugo 1997),
