Effectiveness of a pediatric primary care intervention to increase maternal folate use: results from a cluster randomized controlled trial.
This study assessed the impact of provision of folate vitamins and a preconception health intervention on folate use among a group of mostly African-American and low-income mothers bringing infants to pediatric primary care. It found that among all participants, daily vitamin intake increased from baseline to 6-month follow-up (33.8 percent vs 42.6 percent).
