Nutrition in the transition phase often takes the form of (kind of food)


Explanation:
A suggestion. I agree with Lídia though, we really need to see the rest of the phrase to be able to translate it properly. Some more context for what 'transição' refers to would also help.

"Alimentação" has entirely different syntactic valences in Portuguese than 'feeding' or 'eating' in English, so you are forced to do some gymnastics.

There are a lot of references for "transition diet" and "dietary transition." 'Dietary transition' applies to a number of different circumstances--for example, infants being weaned, people with health problems, people wanting to lose weight, people going on a raw food diet, people whose life circumstances force them to change their diet, etc. We could have helped you more if we could have seen more of your original text.
