The first 1000 days of life indicates the period from conception to the second postnatal year, which is crucial for the growth and development of offspring.
The first 1000 days of life is a period where the foundations for optimum health, growth, and development are established, and is a “window of opportunity” with high plasticity to efficaciously intervene and reduce exposure to adverse factors.
As illustrated by the well-known developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD) concept, factors in early life stages significantly affect the development of diseases in later life.
Substantial evidence has demonstrated the vital role of the first 1000 days of life and their importance in improving long-term health.
The goal of this special issue is to promote long-term health by focusing on the first 1000 days of life.
