Research has shown that the first 1000 days (from pregnancy until their second birthday) are a critical time for a child’s development. Poor nutrition in these early years leads to permanent effects like stunting. Yet the right nutrition makes an infant ten times more likely to overcome childhood diseases, helps them have better health in later life, achieve more at school and bring up healthier families of their own.
Helping an infant get a good, balanced diet before their second birthday is one of the most effective ways we can help their long term wellbeing.
