Nutrition Plus aims to support health care professionals advocate for the role of nutrition during the first 1,000 days through the provision of training, coaching and resources.
The first 1,000 days (being the period from pre-conception through to toddlerhood) provides a window of opportunity where a healthy environment, particularly good nutrition, can positively influence lifelong health by reducing the risk of allergies, weight complications and chronic diseases.
