Support for child health lasts a lifetime

  •  The first 1000 days following conception is a critical period during which 80% of the human brain is formed.

  • Research studies show that undernutrition and unhealthy maternal behaviors in the first 1000 days heavily influences a child’s cognitive function and susceptibility to chronic disease throughout the child’s life.

  • Nations that put the most federal money per person on the first year of life have the best overall health.

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.

- Frederick Douglass (1817–1895)
