It is now well understood around the world that good nutrition plays a major role in the health of individuals, at all stages of development and life.

In recent years, detailed clinical research into the effects of nutrition on growth has brought a wealth of new data that is giving fresh understanding to this key area of development particularly in the first 1,000 days of life: appropriate nutrition at this time can program and prepare the body for long-term health status. Poor nutrition can contribute to obesity or stunting and can also have an adverse effect on brain development and cognition.
