Mbombo emphasised the importance of the first 1 000 days of a baby’s life.

“We as the Western Cape Government Health are excited to be part of this journey, from your baby’s first immunisation to their first steps, we are were to support you. I encourage all parents to remember the importance of the first 1000 days of a child’s life.’’

‘’It is important to create a nurturing and healthy environment for your baby along with good nutrition, which can impact on a child’s ability to develop and learn. Ensure that your baby is fully immunised and follow the advice of health workers at your local clinic. Make time to play with your child and support him or her as they grow and develop. Remember to take care of yourself as well,’’ she added.
