1,000 Days is the leading nonprofit organization working to ensure a healthy first 1,000 days for women and children everywhere. Launched in response to ground-breaking scientific evidence that identified a powerful window of opportunity from a woman’s pregnancy to a child’s 2nd birthday – when nutrition had a long-term impact on the future health and development of both children and societies – 1,000 Days drives greater action and investment to improve nutrition for women, infants and young children in the U.S. and around the world.
