"The first thousand days of a child’s life are of paramount importance, for they determine what sort ofhealth condition the baby will have in lateral life, a British study has suggested.

According to a growing body of research, what happens during this period – the nine months in the womb and the first two years out of it – shapes a child’s chances of everything from developing diabetes in their 40s or 50s to having a heart attack in old age, Daily Mail reported."

This is so true. Nutrition during pregnancy is so important! I wish I would have known during my first pregnancy.
