Nutrition for first 1000 days sets babies on right path

Over half of American young kids are at risk of malnourishment. The most common vegetable for American toddlers is the French fry. A majority of kids are on WIC food assistance but that doesn’t ensure they get good nutrition what will affect their development for the rest of their lives.

A quarter of toddlers don’t receive enough iron, 1 in 5 children are obese, 1 in 6 households with children are food-insecure, and over half of infants participate in the federal Women, Infants, and Children program for supplemental nutrition.
But a couple nonprofits are working to raise awareness, makingThe First 1000 Days a household term.
