The First 1000 Days, from conception to a child’s second birthday, are a critical window to lay the foundations for lifelong development and health1. It’s a time where the brain, body and immune system develop significantly. To put this in perspective, the 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 the first 1000 days can help maintain health later in life.
Your growing baby will rely on you to get the right nutrition during their First 1000 Days of life. Before, during and after pregnancy, your 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 help you reach your recommended daily intake targets and help support your baby for the First 1000 Days.
