Maternity Ward Menu Assessment

Community Projects


Pregnant and breastfeeding have increased energy, protein and micro-nutrient requirements, including those with Gestational Diabetes Mellitus


Nutrition Australia Qld assesses the menu in line with the Qld Health Nutrition Standards for Meals and Menus. We provide recommendations and support to improve food service provision to all maternity patients


The hospital we worked with responded well to our recommendations, and have implemented changes to improve the food options provided to all their maternity patients
