March 23, 2015 | ChildHealth | D.Mihalovic
As children age, we encourage them to eat well, battle to get them to eat their vegetables and avoid sugars -- all to give them the best start in life. But our children's health prospects may have been determined long before all the hard work. A growing body of research suggests the first 1,000 days of a child's life -- the nine months in the womb and the first two years out of it -- are vital to their long-term health.
