Professor Michael Turner welcomes the First 1000 Days Movement

“I warmly welcome the launch of this new website “the first 1,000 days”. There is now strong evidence of the close links between child development and a woman’s health and nutritional status before, during and after pregnancy. High quality information on nutrition is widely dispersed on the internet and is often not user-friendly or easily accessible. We also know from our recent research here in the UCD Centre that women in the childbearing age groups are enthusiastic in their use of the internet and smart applications to obtain pregnancy-related information. This website is an innovation that has the potential to improve the well-being of both women and their offspring.”
