We are the leading non-profit organization working in the U.S. and around the world to ensure women and children have the healthiest first 1,000 days.

Our Work & Impact

Our mission is to make the well-being of women and children in the first 1,000 days a policy and funding priority.



We fight to win support for investments in the nutrition and well-being of mothers, babies and toddlers in the U.S. and around the world.



We work with leading experts on early childhood nutrition and development to help parents give their babies and toddlers a strong start to life.  



We spark action among a global community of parents, advocates, thought leaders and policymakers who are committed to changing the world, 1,000 days at a time.
