Abstract
Pre-pregnancy dietary intake and physical activity may be important in fetal development. The objective of this study was to examine the use of a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) and the Baecke physical activity questionnaire (Baecke) in a retrospective assessment of pre-pregnancy dietary intake and activity in pregnant women. A comparison between groups was completed with both pregnant and non-pregnant women completing the FFQ and Baecke. A comparison between tools was completed in non-pregnant women as dietary intake measured by the FFQ was compared to a 24 hour recall (24HR); and physical activity measured by the Baecke was compared to the Past Year Total Physical Activity Questionnaire (PYTPAQ). The FFQ was found to be comparable between groups, but was not comparable between tools. The Baecke was not comparable between groups, but was comparable between tools. Pre-pregnancy data from the FFQ and Baecke should be utilized with caution.
