  1. Multiple linear regression analysis controlling for maternal education, pre-pregnancy BMI, length of gestation (d), neonate gender, study group (intervention/control), supplement use (yes/no) and significantly associated macronutrient intake (%TE). Definite underreporters (Goldberg ratio ≤0.9) removed. p <0.05 considered statistically significant
