#FoodFri Tweetchat: 1,000 Days - From Pregnancy to a Child's 2nd Birthday
During the 1,000 day window between a woman's pregnancy and her child's 2nd birthday, nutrition is critical. The right nutrition can have a life-changing impact on a child's ability to grow, learn and thrive.
"Quite simply, there is no other period of a person’s life when nutrition has as profound an impact as in the 1,000 days from a woman’s pregnancy until her child’s 2nd birthday. " - Lucy Sullivan
Malnutrition in the first 1,000 days can not only reduce the quality of life for a child, it can also cause irreversible damage. We want to prevent that.
Bring your stories and tips, and join us, as we chat about the importance of the first 1,000 days and how Moms can provide the best possible nourishment during that time.
