What is an ENP?

The first 1000 day
The unique time frame would be the first 1000 days from the time of conception to the toddler years (2 years old). In this sensitive phase, you can develop a central building block for health – the metabolic processes, the brain and the immune system. A child with proper nutrition can reduce its risk of diseases in the later life.
Seize the opportunity to take the future health of your child into your own hands!
Exploiting opportunities in children
A healthy and nutrient rich diet stores a valuable potential for the future health for your child. You will begin the introduction of the family diet for your child at about the 10th month.
An age appropriate supply of nutrient will differ between a child and an adult. Examples of nutrients will be the iodine; calcium as well as Vitamin A, C and D. Nutrient needs for the child and an adult differs - for the development of the brain, immune system and metabolism.
Children are not young adults
Did you know that they may require up to 7 times more nutrients than you do if it was based on the weight of your child?
Therefore, at least 1 time of fatty fish, together with lots of fruits and vegetables should be served for your child’s consumption. This is because fish gives your child iodine, Vitamin D and omega 3 fatty acid, a long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LCP). Your young child can receive all the essential nutrients for growth and development of the brain, metabolism and immune system with a mixed diet so you can enjoy your time with your child with the certainty of giving the best for your child.
We can help you place a right diet for the foundation of the future health of your child with the diverse information and services available. This way, you can easily implement the findings of ENP research on early childhood nutrition in the everyday life of your child.
Take this opportunity to give your child a happy life ahead: a good health together with lots of love
