At most 20% of a baby's future health is determined by genes

Our research into early life shows that at most 20% of a baby’s future health is determined by their inherited genes. The rest is influenced by environmental factors, including nutrition. ‘Early Life Nutrition’ has been shown to be one of the major influencers of lifelong health. It refers to the nourishment that an infant receives during the first 1,000 days of life, from conception through to toddlerhood.
