Z. Bhutta, R. Hurrell, I. Rosenberg

The 70th Nestlé Nutrition Institute Workshop focused on the importance of nutrition in the first 1000 Days. It was addressed that maternal and fetal deficiencies can induce inadequate metabolic programming in the offspring with increased risk for non-communicable diseases later in life. In order to answer questions and lead scientific discussions, we asked world-renowned experts in the area of health science and nutrition to clarify the pathogenesis of micronutrient deficiencies in pregnancy and childhood, preventive methods and strategies, and opportunities for treatment.
