In a developing country like India, maternal nutrition and their health status has always been a point of concern. There are doubts regarding the quantity and quality of milk that they provide to their offsprings. Scanty data that we do have regarding this topic, is many decades old and might not hold true in today's age. This study compared the quality of breast milk on day 3, of mothers. This qualitative analysis of milk was then correlated to the maternal nutritional status. We found that, the breast milk composition is fairly constant and is not affected by maternal nutrition, or dietary intake.
