Abstract: When comparing nutrition and health among mothers in both Japan and Philippines, it can be concluded that, in regard to nutrition, the results of the total dietary scores for mothers in divided into pregnant and after-delivery stages showed that pregnant Filipino mothers' average are lower than those of pregnant Japanese mothers. Pregnant Filipino mothers and those just after delivery to 4 months had lower average dietary scores than Filipino mothers 5 months and later after delivery. These results are thought to be an important factor in the improvement of health condition and life expectancy of Filipino mothers and their children. In Japanese mothers, such differences were not found. When comparing individual dietary scores and the rate of nutrients consumed to the optimum amounts, significant differences were found among mothers in both countries. Analysis of food diaries of mothers from both countries found that Japanese mothers had average intakes of nutrients such as energy, protein, fat, vitamin B1 and vitamin B2 and were deficient in calcium, iron and vitamin A. Filipino mothers took in average amounts of protein, calcium, iron, vitamin B2 and vitamin C and were deficient in energy, fat and vitamin B1.
