  • Early Moments Matter for children’s brain development, UNICEF

    ASHGABAT, TURKMENISTAN, 12 January 2016 – A Global campaign #EarlyMomentsMatter was launched at UNICEF Headquarters in New York. The new campaign, supported by the LEGO Foundation, drives increased awareness about the importance of the first 1,000 days of a child’s life and the impact of early experiences on the developing brain. During this critical window of opportunity, brain cells can make up to 1,000 new connections every second – a once-in-a-lifetime speed. These connections contribute to children’s brain function and learning, and lay the foundation for their future health and happiness. A lack of nurturing care – which includes adequate nutrition, stimulation, love and protection from stress and violence – can impede the development of these critical connections.
