Inadequate nutrition in the first 1,000 days of a child’s life can permanently impact their physical and cognitive development.
The right to adequate nutrition is a fundamental and foundational right for children, essential for life, health, development and dignity. Without these, a child cannot enjoy the full range of human rights to which all people are entitled.
