Iron for Human Brain Development: A Fulfill Strategy in the First 1,000 Days of Life

Qodri Santosa

Abstract

Every child has the right to live, survive, and optimal growth and development. Iron has a fundamental role in brain development. Iron deficiency (ID) in the first two years of life harms the child's long-term development (possibly irreversible), even though ID has been corrected. For optimal child development, the first two years of life are a crucial period. Iron deficiency during pregnancy can cause adverse pregnancy outcomes, both maternal and newborn, resulting in long-term disruption to the child's growth and development. We must pay special attention to the adequacy of iron needs from conception to two years of age. This article describes the importance of iron for human brain development and what should we do to ensure iron adequacy, especially in the first 1,000 days of life.
