The nutritional and health status of the mother plays a vital role in the development of the unborn child even before conception. The most critical development of a baby occurs during the first three months of the pregnancy when many women do not realize they are pregnant.
Studies have shown that adequate nutrition during pregnancy potentially results in ideal birth weight, reduced infant mortality and improved growth. Adequate nutrition in the first 1000 days of life is critical in ensuring benefits in both economic and health terms. Nutrition during the first 1000 days of life has a direct impact on the risk of developing non-communicable diseases (NCD’s) such as cardiovascular diseases, stroke, hypertension and diabetes later in life and ultimately decreases the health risks being passed onto future generations.
