Nestle: Start Healthy, Stay Healthy!

As any time is the right time to get some useful knowledge, this time Nestle via #First1000Days educated the key opinion influencers by the importance of nutrition in the first 1,000 days of a child’s life. 

The awareness in particular was about the first 1,000 days of life (from conception until second year of life) is considered as a crucial period of life during which the nutrition one takes in plays an important role in determining the health of a person later in life. The first two years represent the most critical period of growth and development.  For example, most of the brain development is completed by the age of two years and the height that a child has at 2 years is almost half the height that child will have as an adult. 

"Nestle has an expertise in nutrition and believes it has a responsibility to share that expertise. We want to promote better health through good nutrition in the first 1,000 days of life. Research shows that children who don’t get proper nutrition in their early years can’t fully develop their physical and cognitive potential and are at an increased risk of poor health as adults." 
- Waqar Ahmad, the Head of Corporate Affairs
