Nutritional Programming and Later Life

Worldwide, changing lifestyles and an increase in life expectancy have led to an increased number of people suffering from chronic noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). Clearly, unhealthy diets and sedentary lifestyles contribute to obesity risk throughout life, but growing evidence indicates that the vulnerability to NCDs is largely set during the first 1,000 days, the period from conception until 2 years of age. Interventions during this period may induce only subtle changes in the developmental path, but, from a life-course perspective, have great potential to reduce later chronic disease risk compared to late interventions. Interventions in early life thus provide a window for “primordial disease prevention” – an opportunity to prevent later life disease by reducing developmental risk factors. As an industry player active in the field of early life nutritional solutions and education, Danone’s scientific interest is to better understand the role and contribution of the diet to later health and disease risk, and to translate these insights into our products and educational work.
