The First 1,000 Days

When children are denied proper nutrition in their first few years of life, it stunts both their personal growth and the growth potential of their communities. This hour, we’ll visit Uganda, India, Guatemala – and places in the U.S. – to hear how children in disadvantaged households are thriving thanks to programs focused on early-childhood nutrition. We’ll be joined by Roger Thurow, senior fellow for global agriculture and food policy at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and author of “The First 1,000 Days: A Crucial Time for Mothers and Children—And the World” (PublicAffairs).
