AbstractMaternal nutritional status during pregnancy will affect the outcomes for the mother and the baby.

The use of dietary pattern analysis to understand nutritional intake and pregnancy outcome is becoming more and more popular.

This review examined articles about the relationship between maternal dietary patterns and pregnancy outcome.
