Thank you for the excellent presentation! I wonder—if the diets of our pre-agricultural ancestors were so much closer to micronutrient recommendations, do historical skeletal compositions reflect this? I tend to think of earlier humans as much shorter than we are today
William A. Masters
Kay, following on Wafaie's question about costs and dosage/duration/targeting, can you speak to the underlying reason why fortifying a lipid-based product is best for low-income countries, rather than fortifying cereals as we did historically in rich countries? Why did the INCAPARINA approach not take off, and you turned to LNS instead?
William A. Masters
^^ also for clarification, by fortifying cereals what I mean is a dry cereal-legume mix, where the legume is usually roasted soybean but could be any other source of protein and fats. The fat content of the dry, precooked and premixed cereal is lower than the LNS, but cost is much lower.

Thankyou!I am from India, where there has been growing focus on the first 1000 days. I am interested to hear your views about the role of mental health on nutrition during the first 1000 days. What can be done about integrating this within nutrition programs?
William A. Masters
thank you -- super clear!
Simone Passarelli
Thank you! Super interesting.
