Today, more than 2 billion people in the world are overweight or obese and 800 million are malnourished. This calls for action.
At Nestlé, we believe that by helping new generations eat and drink better and move more, we enhance quality of life and contribute to a healthier future.
This is how we started more than 150 years ago when our founder Henri Nestlé created an infant cereal that saved the life of a child.
This is how we continue to act, by launching Nestlé for Healthier Kids, an initiative that federates all our efforts to support parents & caregivers on their journey to raise healthier kids.
Enabling healthier and happier lives
From leading research to product development, from education to innovative nutrition and lifestyle services, our ambition is to help 50 million children lead healthier lives by 2030. Find our more about our three focus areas.

Nestlé Breakfast Cereals inspires families to enjoy a balanced breakfast.

At Nestlé Breakfast Cereals, we believe that a better breakfast is more than a good start to the day - it’s the foundation for a better future.
We’ve made wholegrain the number one ingredient in our children’s products and are further reducing sugar. Most of our breakfast cereals for children are also fortified with at least seven vitamins and two minerals.
We’re helping parents create a balanced breakfast, with guidance on portion size and inspiring food combinations, so that children can enjoy a nutritious and tasty start to the day.

Many children suffer from deficiencies in essential vitamins and minerals such as iron. Worldwdie 40% of pre-schoolers are anaemic.
That is why Cerelac infant cereals are fortified with key micronutrients (iron, zinc, vitamin A and vitamin C).
Cerelac is suitable as a first complementary food for infants from 6 months onwards, when breast milk alone no longer meets the baby's growing nutritional requirements.
A recent study in India showed that young children who consume fortified cereals have a reduced risk of iron deficiency anaemia.

Micronutrient deficiency (MND) affects millions of families around the world. It can lead to weak immune system, reduced mental capacity & poor growth especially amongst children; thus risking to trap emerging families in a vicious cycle of weak health and reduced income.
At Bear Brand, we believe that nutrition deficiencies should not stop emerging families from pursuing their dreams of a better life. Through our NutriStrong fortification we provide strength by tailoring our products to the specific nutritional gaps of each country.
With our campaigns and nutrition education programmes we help families be healthier and stronger.
