The well-being of every baby is of utmost importance to every parent. Recent scientific research findings indicate that more than 20% of the future health of babies is influenced by his genes. At least 80% are determined by external factors at a young age, which can be a positive influence from the start of life. Here, the diet plays an essential role.
Latest results from the Early Life Nutritional programming research on early childhood nutrition show that the diet of your baby between the time frame from the day of conception to the 2nd birthday of your child can have a crucial impact for lifelong health as the body has the fastest growth of central building blocks, especially the immune system, brain and metabolism in the first 1000 days of life.
