Our Global Work

1,000 Days leads the fight to give mothers and babies in the U.S. and around the world the nutrition they need to thrive. We work with global leaders and grassroots communities of parents to make the 1,000 days between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s 2nd birthday a window of opportunity to build healthier, brighter futures.

The right nutrition during the first 1,000 days between pregnancy and a child’s 2nd birthday sets the foundation for children’s brain development and lifelong health. The damage done by malnutrition in the first 1,000 days of a child’s life is irreversible, but the good news is that it is almost entirely preventable.
