    Good nutrition during the first 2 years of life is vital for healthy growth and development. Starting good nutrition practices early can help children develop healthy dietary patterns. This website brings together existing information and practical strategies on feeding healthy foods and drinks to infants and toddlers, from birth to 24 months. It is well recognized that the period from birth to two years of age is a “critical window” for the promotion of optimal growth, health and behavioral develop-ment. Longitudinal studies have consistently shown that this is the peak age for growth falter-ing, deficiencies of certain micronutrients, and common childhood illnesses such as.

    Its most devastating impacts occur during foetal development and in the first few years of a child’s life. Globally, 30 per cent of the world’s population live in areas with iodine deficiency 1.
