1,000 Days is the leading non-profit organization working in the U.S. and around the world to improve nutrition and ensure women and children have the healthiest first 1,000 days.
We support the three proposed indicators and echo the importance of adolescent nutrition raised by DHS QRE Administrator. Reproductive age is a crucial period for nutrition, but so is adolescence, as experts often define it as "second window of opportunity" (after the first 1000-days) for growth and development. Better understanding women's diets will more comprehensively assess whether women are getting the nutrition they need and will be immensely important to our advocacy to improve women's nutrition.
