Emerging Science for the First 1,000 Days: Knowledge Gaps and RD Opportunities
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the most active period of neurologic development occurs in the first 1,000 days of life. For the first time, the 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans will consider neurocognitive health and development through all life stages as well as comprehensive dietary guidance for women during pregnancy and infants and toddlers under 2 years of age. As the body of science grows, the critical nature of key nutrients during the first 1,000 days will become an area of increasing importance for health professionals to address. However, despite this exciting momentum, research reveals a concerning knowledge gap amongst key practitioners, obstetricians, and pediatricians as well as mothers when it comes to key nutrients such as choline and lutein. During this podcast, Phil Lempert explores with Dr. Mickey Rubin, the Executive Director of the Egg Nutrition Center, the cutting-edge science on diet and neurocognition for the first 1,000 days. This podcast is available here and here.
