Nutrition throughout our lives - before conception and during pregnancy, breastfeeding, childhood and adolescence, not only impacts our risk for acquiring chronic diseases, but our descendants' risk as well. Our 2022 theme, Nutrition Now for a Healthier Future, highlights how every stage of our nutritional journey provides an opportunity to improve our health and the health of our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
