Diversity of diet among pregnant women is associated with nutrition sufficiency and micronutrient adequacy. This analysis shows that the diet quality of pregnant women was poor in the study region in Bangladesh, and intake of micronutrient-rich foods was low despite knowledge about the importance of these foods. The study result underscores the need to address other determinants of diet diversity as well as knowledge about recommended practices.
