In a recent study published in the Journal of Nutrition, IFPRI researchers Jef Leroy, Marie Ruel, and co-authors found that growth faltering, a consequence of chronic undernutrition, does not slow down after the child’s second birthday as generally believed, but continues well past that time. In fact, the study showed that nearly one-third of the total height deficit (30%) at the age of 5 is accumulated after the age of 2, that is, after the 1000 day window.
Seriously, did anyone honestly think that 1000 days was more than a nice, round number?
Government leadership and substantial investment in research are needed to shift global consumption habits towards eating patterns that are both healthy and sustainable, say academics, industry and NGOs representatives in a new report.
