The present study revealed that the majority of nurses had adequate knowledge about dietary practices during the antenatal and post-natal period. However, their knowledge about nutritive value of foods and nutrition advice during disease conditions was inadequate. It is recommended that to make the training more meaningful, the identification of the incorrect dietary beliefs of trainees should be done at the beginning of the training course. Each incorrect belief should be explained in detail for better comprehension of the correct knowledge in nutrition.
