Condition Intervention
Focus of Study is Healthy Chinese Lactating Mother 0-270 Days Other: no intervention.

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Evaluation of the Nutrients Composition of Breast Milk of Chinese Lactating Mothers and Nutrition Intake of Chinese Pregnant and Lactating Mothers, Infants and Young Children

Further study details as provided by Nestlé:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary outcome is the macronutrient composition of breast milk in Chinese lactating mothers from 0 to 270 days after delivery. [ Time Frame: 0-270 days after delivery ]
    Macronutrient composition includes calories (kcal/ml), total protein, fat and carbohydrate (lactose) content in breast milk.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Other nutrient composition in breast milk of 0-270 days after delivery. [ Time Frame: 0-270 days after delivery. ]
    Beside macronutrient composition, all major minerals, vitamins will be analyzed. In addition, functional compounds, such as human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs), total/free amino acids, lipid profiles, and microbiota, will be analyzed as well.

  • Dietary pattern of lactating mothers of 0-270 days after delivery. [ Time Frame: 0-270 days after delivery. ]
    A one-time standardized 24-hour food recall survey, is utilized to access dietary pattern of subjects.

  • Nutrients intake and adequacy of lactating mothers of 0-270 days after delivery. [ Time Frame: 0-270 days after delivery ]
    A one-time standardized 24-hour food recall survey, is utilized to access nutrient intakes and adequacy (by comparing existing local and international RDAs and DRIs databases).

  • Nutrition supplements intake status of lactating mothers of 0-270 days after delivery. [ Time Frame: 0-270 days after delivery. ]
    A one-time food frequency questionnaire (FFQ), designed to access nutritional supplement usage, is being utilized.
