Recent product launches including Gerber, NaturNes, Ninho...
In 2018, we launched over 1,300 nutritious food and drink products, adding to the 1,000 products that we had launched in 2017. In the same year, we provided over 184.7 billion servings of fortified foods and beverages in countries where people lack vital micronutrients such as iodine or iron.
Here are some examples:

2. Inspiring with supportive programmes and services
Parents and caregivers need help to raise kids with healthier eating and lifestyle habits. We develop programs and online services to provide them with nutritional knowledge, healthy recipes and practical tips.
In 2018, Nestlé for Healthier Kids programs reached 29 million children in 86 countries around the world.
Here are some examples:
Kids involved in the cooking process tend to eat healthier. Cooking makes a difference! Maggi provides cooking classes, online recipes and cooking tips to help families cook tasty and balanced meals that kids will love.
In Germany, the Maggi Kochstudio (cooking center) provides the support parents need to cook homemade meals every day. In Thailand, the 'Mum and Me' cooking club helps transmit cooking expertise from mother to kids, so that they adopt healthy long-term eating habits with more vegetables.
Nestlé Baby & me
Adopting good nutrition habits from an early age is essential to becoming a healthy adult. Nestlé Baby & me offers personalized nutrition services to parents in the first 1000 days of life - from pregnancy through to the baby’s second birthday.
The program is available in over 50 countries and almost 10 million parents are currently registered. Our services, mainly online, include an engaging e-learning course that turns the latest scientific findings into simple, practical feeding advice.
Nestlé Professional and the International Chefs Day
To celebrate International Chefs Day, chefs around the world work together with teachers and parents to share their love for healthy cooking and teach children basic healthy cooking skills.

Milo sport camps
When kids grow with sports, not only do they lead a healthier and more active lifestyle - they also learn skills and values that help them succeed in life.
Well-established Milo grassroots sports programs across the world are helping more than 20 million kids find the sports that the love, and also learn important values like teamwork and leadership.
Nestlé for Healthier Kids school programs
In collaboration with over 300 partners worldwide, our module specifically designed for schools provides teachers, parents and children with a range of nutrition and physical activities – promoting a healthy lifestyle in the school environment in more than 80 countries.
These programs are anchored in nutritional and behavioral sciences and aim to encourage students to adopt a minimum of six healthy habits.
