The best start in life

The World Health Organisation have launched a report on 'Good maternal nutrition- the best start in life'. This report was developed to provide a European overview on existing national recommendations on nutrition, physical activity and weight gain during pregnancy and the postpartum period, as well as infant and young child nutrition recommendations and supportive measures. 

Four key priorities were identified in the report:

  • develop and regularly update recommendations for national use
  • reduce health inequalities throughout the Region through improved maternal and infant
    nutritional status
  • ensure capacity-building for health professionals dealing with maternal and young child health
  • support Member States’ requests for action on how to improve maternal health most effectively through measures which improve dietary and physical activity patterns
