Immigrant Women's Food Choices and Practices during the Perinatal Period

This report is divided into 4 sections. The first section provides an overview of the study design and a general synopsis of the findings. The following sections provide specific information on food beliefs and practices among three distinct immigrant communities. The intent is that these sections can be used alone while consulting with members from those communities, and will help you, the health practitioner; discover ways to integrate dietary recommendations with unique cultural food beliefs and practices. It is our hope that similar factsheets could be developed for other communities, and be incorporated into materials already in use by clinicians.
