Child malnutrition is a widely distributed pathology, as well as studied, the approach through the concept of the thousand days improves the understanding of the process, as well as the opportunities for intervention that can affect the eradication of the pathology and improve the quality of life of the child and the future adult. The present documentary research work addresses child malnutrition due to deficit and describes the development from the moment of conception to 2 years around fetal metabolic reprogramming particularly in the third trimester of pregnancy and compensatory growth "Catch up growth", opens the window to malnutrition in the immediate postnatal period, mediate, future, the introduction of sensitive tools CANS core that allows early detection of fetal malnutrition by labeling patients within a group of high nutritional risk in conjunction with those who present explicit alterations of the deprivation suffered in pregnancy. Thus, a proposal for a community strategy is proposed based on four axes: Early diagnosis of subclinical malnutrition, prioritization of the quality of health services, quality of data collection systems and social participation that, articulated with government strategies, optimizes economic, political and institutional efforts for the eradication of child malnutrition.
