Brief description The mild iodine deficiency common among people living in South Eastern Australia is of sufficient concern for the government to order that all bread be fortified with low dose iodine. This fortification falls well short of the amount health workers think is required by pregnant women and this could prove harmful to their children. This trial will determine if a daily iodine tablet taken during pregnancy improves the development of children.
