This webinar presents the distribution of intake of micronutrients among US pregnant women from food sources alone and with dietary supplements, based on a nationally representative sample and a larger, research-based sample. It focuses on the nutrients most critical to positive pregnancy outcomes, and determines the gaps between average intake and average need. It considers how much supplementation is needed to achieve optimal intake at the population and individual levels, and identifies dietary supplements in the US market that bridge the gap between what pregnant women get from food and what they actually need. It also considers food-based options to meet the nutrient gaps. It concludes with practical guidance to individuals, providers, and manufacturers to better meet the nutritional needs of US pregnant women.
