Proper nutrition during the 1,000 days between a woman's pregnancy and her child's second birthday is crucial to human development. Investing in the prevention of hunger and ensuring all children have a healthy start during the 1,000 days can lead to better outcomes in health, education, and wages in adulthood.
As Congress works on funding bills and a once-in-a-generation infrastructure package, urge them to prioritize investing in the needs of pregnant women and young children.
