Nutritious food, clean water and a hygienic environment are the building blocks of health for any public. However, these necessities are out of reach for many families particularly in women of low-resource environments. This article provides information about the good nutritional care and avoiding of its deficiencies in women. Accordingly, malnutrition contributes to several deaths of women worldwide. Women's deprivation in terms of nutrition and health care rebounds on society in the form of ill-health of their males and females offspring alike. Countries where malnutrition is common might deal with its immediate costs, including reduced income from malnourished citizens, and face long-term problems that may be related to low birth weight, including high rates of cardiac disease and diabetes in women. Public health systems need to prevent and treat micronutrient deficiencies, encourage households to meet the dietary needs of women and adolescent girls throughout their lives, and ensure their access to high-quality health services, clean water, and an adequate sanitation. By taking of such actions, not only improve the health of girls and women, but it has far-reaching intergenerational effects that can help the countries to develop further. Women must eat a healthful balanced diet to help ensure health throughout pregnancy to affect the fitness of both female and baby. Characteristically, women might moderate the consumption of animal fat, reasonable consumption of sugary soft drinks, choose low-fat dairy products, moderate the consumption of convenience foods, drink at least two litres of water per day, and esteem the subsequent meals. An example of a balanced diet is taking of breakfast (orange juice, 1 cup of milk and 60 grams of cereal), midmorning (non-fat yogurt with fruit), lunch (a bowl of rice with vegetables, tortilla chips, 40 grams of bread and fruit), snack (2-fat yogurt and 2 slices of bread with jam), and dinner (fish with vegetables, 40 grams of bread and a serving of fruit for dessert). Governments of the states should implement national recommendations in food and nutritional care in health and social precaution, promote implementation both in public and private sectors, and ensure widest possible dissemination of recommendations.
