1,000 Days for Brain Growth and Development

Alive & Thrive is an initiative in Vietnam aimed at improving infant and young child feeding by increasing rates of exclusive breastfeeding and improving complementary feeding practices.

A series of seven posters were placed in health facilities to reinforce messages received during counseling. They focus on no water in the first six months, exclusive breastfeeding, frequent breastfeeds, timely introduction of complementary foods, feeding iron-rich foods, and the critical 1,000 day window for brain growth and physical development.

This poster reinforces messages about the critical 1,000 day window from pregnancy through the first two years to ensure optimal growth.
