Also, a study that shows 80% of adults do not consume the recommended daily intake of fruit and vegetables. How diet influences behaviour in children and the alarmingly high levels of lead and copper in some Australian household drinking water.

A new paper, by the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, has highlighted the critical period of child development from conception to the end of two years of age. This being the crucial period for child development that sets the scene for a lifetime of physical, mental and emotional health.

The evidence paper, compiled by researchers at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI), highlights the importance of a child’s first 1000 days of growth. The report, 'The First Thousand Days', has shown that children are affected in multiple ways, including through biology, their experiences, environment and diet, their parent’s health and lifestyle during pregnancy, and the broader community. The developing foetus uses ‘cues’ provided by the mother’s physical and mental state to ‘predict’ the kind of world they will be born into, and how to adapt to it accordingly.
