The association between diet quality and work transitions in reproductive aged women.
Young women are increasingly challenged with balancing their family and work-life. The association between diet quality and womenÔÇÖs work transitions before and after the birth of their child is poorly understood. This study will investigate diet quality as measured by the Dietary Guideline Index (DGI) using dietary data from the food frequency questionnaires completed by postpartum women who had given birth from the Young (1973-78) cohort at survey 5. Specifically, we will investigate the association between diet quality and paid and unpaid maternity leave arrangements, duration of maternity leave, and working arrangements (full time, part time, casual) after childbirth.
