Pre-conception and The First 1000 Days (conception to a child's second birthday) are a critical window to lay the foundations for lifelong development and health18. It’s a time where the brain, body and immune system develop significantly. To put this in perspective, a baby develops from 1 cell to 500 trillion cells during the First 1000 Days!
There is even evidence to suggest that the protective effects of good nutrition during pre-conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding can help maintain health later in life.
Your growing baby will rely on you to get the right nutrition pre-pregnancy and during their First 1000 Days of life. During these different stages of the pregnancy journey, you should try to maintain a healthy diet from a range of food groups, to help ensure you and your baby are getting enough essential nutrients.
It can be difficult to meet your nutritional requirements from diet alone, especially when you’re pregnant, experiencing morning sickness or just flat-out tired! This is where a prenatal multivitamin, like Elevit, can support you in reaching your recommended daily intake with a range of nutrients to help support your baby for the First 1000 Days.
