In the first 1,000 days of their lives children experience the period of greatest development and simultaneously greatest vulnerability. It’s a key stage where food and nutrition have a high impact on their health.

Parents must be given the tools to make more informed choices about healthy, appropriate and diverse nutrition for their children. Choices that promote more sustainable and accessible food systems.

Let’s find out together which foods to say no to, such as those with poor nutritional quality and high environmental impact; and let’s see instead which foods to say Yes to, such as those that support (bio)diversity, those that are produced on healthy soil in healthy ways, and equitably distributed. By choosing to feed our children in healthy and sustainable ways we help write the health of tomorrow’s adults today.
