Abstract
Background: Pregnancy was the most important initial period in a thousand days of the golden age of a child’s life. Insufficient nutritional intake for pregnant women poses a risk to both the mother and the baby. In some parts of Indonesia, restrictions on food consumption related to social norms during pregnancy still exist. The nutritional content of these foods was important for pregnant women. The purpose of this study was to find a picture of various social nutritional norms during pregnancy in the territory of Indonesia. Methods: This study was a literature review derived from qualitative and quantitative research. Search articles from 2010-2020 came from Google’s scholar and PubMed search database with the keywords “social norm” OR “nutrition” OR “pregnancy” OR “belief” OR “food selection” OR “pregnant women” AND “Indonesia”. Additional gray literature comes from the desk review and report. The inclusion criteria were only articles related to nutrition, while other behaviors or activities that were not related to nutrition were excluded. Besides, social norms during postnatal or postpartum were also not included in the study. A total of 10 articles were selected. Results: The results of the study showed that some regions in Indonesia prohibit pregnant women even though the food was nutritionally good for mother and baby. Not all studies provide a ban on food and drink as well as for the nutritional social norms of pregnant women in Indonesia. Only three studies provide recommendations on foods and drinks that women should consume during pregnancy. Conclusions: Health workers were expected to play more roles in efforts to educate and promote good nutrition during pregnancy related to the norms prevailing in the society.
