March for Nutrition ToolKit


Social Media Toolkit


In recognition of National Nutrition Month, the 1,000 Days Partnership is organizing an online “march” to raise awareness about the critical role of nutrition in the 1,000 day window from a woman’s pregnancy to her child’s second birthday. Throughout the month of March, we will share blogs, stories, tweets, facts and more that illustrate the universal importance of good nutrition, and we invite you to add your voice and March for Nutrition!

Each week we will feature content related to the 1,000-day window, and we will highlight the critical issues, challenges and opportunities related to the different stages: pre-pregnancy to birth, birth to 6 months; and 6 months to 2 years. The weekly themes are as follows:


March 1- 7: Setting the Stage: The critical 1,000 day window

Help us tell the story of the challenge of malnutrition and the opportunity of 1,000 days.


March 8-14: Pre-pregnancy to birth

Let’s elevate the importance of maternal nutrition, including nutrition even before pregnancy.


March 15-21: Infancy: Birth to 6 months

Share successes and challenges in promoting breastfeeding around the world.


March 22-27: Toddlerhood: 6 months to two years

Help us shed some light on complementary feeding as well as the importance of water, sanitation and hygiene during this time of extraordinary growth.


March 28-31: In Summary: The impact of good nutrition

Wrap-up by sharing how/why this message is true: the impact of good nutrition early in life can reach far into the future.
