The first 1000 days of life, from conception to 24 months, form a crucial period that shapes a child’s entire life. How well a mother and child are nourished and cared for during this time has a profound impact on physical, emotional, and mental growth and development. This is critical because the first 1000 days are when a child’s brain begins to grow and develop and where the foundations are laid for lifelong health.

The first 1000 days of life are key to lifelong health and well-being.
