The Early Life Nutrition Coalition is an affiliation of professional, academic, advocacy, corporate and healthcare groups working collaboratively to promote and communicate the importance of Early Life Nutrition as a long-term preventative health measure.

The Coalition’s aim is to drive awareness and action that supports empowerment and behavioural change for improved nutritional status during the First 1,000 Days – that being prior to conception through to toddlerhood. Key areas of focus include: maternal nutrition before, during and after pregnancy; paternal health and diet; promoting the importance of breastfeeding for as long as possible; introducing solids, including known allergens, at around six months; and positive nutritional role modelling by parents and caregivers, health care professionals, society and policymakers.
