Every parent wants their children to be healthy and smart after birth. From the mother-to-be’s pregnancy to two years after the baby’s birth (that is, 270 days of pregnancy plus 730 days of two years after birth), the first 1,000 days of life are an important stage in the growth of fetal brain cells and a critical period of nutritional intervention.
