Abstract: Abstract Nutrition is an area that requires special attention during pregnancy. Nutrition during pregnancy is a significant public health concern. Maternal nutrition and health is considered as the most important regulations of human fetal growth. Therefore an appropriate eating pattern is essential throughout pregnancy to ensure a healthy pregnancy and baby (Pickel et al., 2005). Social class have also been found to correlate significantly with dietary habit and hence nutrient intake especially among pregnant women. In the present study, 246 samples upto 24 weeks of pregnancy were selected as per the inclusive and exclusive criteria by using the purposive sampling technique which is a type of non- probability sampling. In urban habitat, the intake of calorie (1812.50±223.15 kcal), protein (46.82 ± 6.49 gm), iron (17.62 ±2.06 mg), calcium (566.62 ±123.04 mg) and folic acid (200.85 ± 24.00 μg) was found to be higher than the intake of calorie (1612.01±222.75 kcal), protein (41.51 ± 4.84 gm), iron (15.84 ±1.51mg), calcium (457.17 ± 69.78 mg) and folic acid (184.87 ± 12.88 μg ) in rural habitat. Fat intake was found high in rural (36.96 ±2.75gm) than urban (35.13 ±3.12 gm) habitat. It was observed that the intake of calorie, protein, iron, calcium and folic acid was found maximum in high socio-economic status (1944.21±160.40 kcal, 51.57±5.67 gm, 19.15±1.54 mg, 642.69±95.35 mg and 221.73±21.19 µg respectively), minimum in low socio-economic status (1575.54±223.52 kcal, 40.95±4.74 gm, 15.49±1.43 mg, 447.70±66.31 mg and 181.93±9.78 µg respectively). Fat intake was noted to be maximum in low socio-economic status (37.47±2.59 gm) and minimum in high socio-economic status (34.20±3.50 gm).
