Civil Society Alliance for Scaling Up Nutrition, Bangladesh (CSA for SUN, BD) is the part of United Nations System Standing Committee on Nutrition (UNSCN). This is the apocalyptic mission of one thousand days to scaling up nutrition world wide. This is the nutrition's promoting story of One Thousand and One Nights during this golden edge of unimaginable scientific development.
The thousand days stated that 'the 1,000 days from the start of a woman's pregnancy until her child's 2nd birthday offer a unique window of opportunity to shape healthier and more prosperous futures. The right nutrition during this 1,000 day window can have an enormous impact on a child's ability to grow, learn, and rise out of poverty.'
