The Essential Knowledge Briefing practical guides under 'Gut Health in Early Life' examine gut health during the first 1000 days, a critical period of human development which provides the foundation for lifelong health and wellbeing. These Briefings are specifically developed for healthcare professionals who work with infants and their caregivers.
The first title, 'Significance of the Gut Microbiota and Nutrition for Development and Future Health' provides an overview of early gut development, the role of gut microbiota and how it influences short- and long-term health.
