As per available reports about 21 Relevant Journals, 10 Conferences, 1 Workshop is presently dedicated exclusively to Women’s Nutrition and about 658 Open Access Articles are being published on Women’s Nutrition.
Good nutrition for women starts with the basics such as a well-rounded diet consisting of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, and lean sources of protein. These kinds of foods provide women with plenty of energy, the means for lifelong weight control, and the vital ingredients for looking and feeling great at any age.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and publishes 700+ Open Access Journals which contain over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members and organizing committee members.

Scope and Importance
Women’s nutritional health is vitally important in relation to women’s quality of life and their reproductive health and pregnancy outcomes.
Women’s nutrition is directly linked to three of the UN Millennium Development Goals:
1. End poverty and hunger
2. Reduce child mortality
3. Improve maternal health.
Links with other goals may be less direct, but are still salient including:
1. Achieve gender equality and empower women (for access to food and related resources)
2. Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases (which affect and are affected by nutritional status)
3. Ensure environmental and agricultural sustainability (which impacts women’s roles in food production and their access to food and environmental resources).
Intervention programs for under nutrition target three main problems:
1. General nutritional deficiency (e.g., inadequate dietary intake)
2. Specific micronutrient deficiencies
3. Diseases directly affecting nutritional outcome (e.g., malaria, helminthes, and HIV/AIDS).
Strategies addressing the first two problems include provision of supplements (food supplements, micronutrients), food production strategies, food-based strategies (genetic engineering, agricultural interventions), and dietary behavior change. Interventions to combat malaria, parasitic diseases, and HIV/AIDS include preventive and therapeutic treatment. The increasing programmatic emphasis on women’s nutrition requires needs assessments and effective monitoring and evaluation, ideally with core indicators consistent with DHS and country surveillance sources.
Women need fewer calories but more nutrients than men to be at their best. In some respects, men and women have different nutritional needs, largely due to differences in male and female hormones. Body composition comes into the picture, because we know that muscle takes more calories to maintain, even when you're not exercising than fat. So women need fewer calories than men in part because they tend to be smaller and have higher fat percentages than men. That means American Dietetic Association , most grain foods we eat, such as cereals, pasta, and bread, are now fortified with iron. Some foods that are naturally high in iron include spinach, chard, beans (pinto, kidney, black), lentils, and split peas. Increase the amount of iron you absorb from food by eating vitamin C-rich foods orange juice, broccoli, tomatoes along with foods high in iron. Women can be iron deficient and not be anemic. Being iron deficient can keep women from performing optimally.""Women build bone into their mid-20s, and they need to eat calcium-rich foods to promote bone density. More calcium may be needed for women in menopause since with estrogen declines, calcium may 'leak' from the bones."The daily calcium recommendations are 1,000 milligrams a day for women under 50, and 1,500 milligrams a day for women 51 and older. Oddly enough, these are the same requirements for men, who are much less prone to osteoporosis than women. But the recommendation takes into account the fact that women are smaller than men. Thus the amount of daily calcium is greater for women on a proportional basis. Both women and men need folate, or folic acid. At proper levels, it has been linked to better heart health and possible protection from colon cancer. But for women in their childbearing years, getting enough of this B-vitamin can greatly reduce the chances of neurological birth defects. The Institute of Medicine recommends 400 micrograms daily for people over age 14. Pregnant women need 600 micrograms daily, and women who are breastfeeding need 500 micrograms daily."It's difficult to overstate the need for women to get sufficient folate before and during pregnancy," says Turner. "It's important for overall good health,
Nutrition deficiencies and related conditions, including underweight, height stunting, anemia, vitamin A deficiencies and night blindness, low birth weight, and micronutrient-related birth defects, such as neural tube defects resulting from folic acid deficiency, continue to be major concerns for women’s health and reproductive outcomes in developing countries. Serious problems with women’s under nutrition (BMI < 18.5 kg/m2) are evident in many regions and markedly so among countries in sub-Saharan Africa and south-central and southeastern Asia. In addition to the high prevalence of under nutrition among women and girls in many regions and countries, there are growing issues surrounding overweight and obesity. Current evidence has clearly demonstrated that overweight and obesity and related non-communicable diseases have been exploding in low- and middle- income countries. Survey evidence for over two decades from developing countries has been demonstrating steady and widespread increases in the prevalence of overweight and obesity among adults, as well as, children and adolescents. In response to the recommendations of WHO’s Expert Consultation on Obesity, an online WHO Global Database on Body Mass Index (BMI) was created to monitor country-level and regional over- and under-nutrition trends. Weight gain during pregnancy is one of the most critical factors in determining both birth outcomes and maternal nutritional outcomes of pregnancy. Weight gain is particularly important for women who are underweight prior to pregnancy; however, given the rising numbers of overweight and obese women of reproductive age, recommended weight gains for normal to overweight women and concerns with excess weight gain need to be taken into consideration. Pre-pregnancy obesity and excess weight gain during pregnancy are risk factors for heavier babies. Women Nutrition products market is valued at around $5.95 billion at the end of 2014. The US retail women nutrition market accounts for more than half of the $10 billion global market as per a market analyst.
