Repeated measures analysis highlighting the effects of prenatal food and micronutrient supplementations on linear growth (16 anthropometric assessments) by maternal BMI (median) from birth to 54 months of age. Dots represent mean%. p-values for the contrasts from the repeated-measures analysis E BMI < 19.7 vs. U BMI < 19.7, p = 0.09; Fe60 BMI < 19.7 vs. MMS BMI < 19.7, p = 0.05 E BMI > 19.7 vs. U BMI > 19.7, p = 0.05; Fe60 BMI > 19.7 vs. MMS BMI > 19.7, p = 0.13 E = Early invitation to food supplementation, U = Usual invitation to food supplementation, BMI = body mass index; Fe30F = 30 mg iron and 400 μg of folic acid; Fe60F = 60 mg iron and 400 μg of folic acid; MMS = multiple micronutrients, 15 micronutrients including 30 mg iron and 400 μg of folic acid.
