Nestle for Healthier Kids

Helping 50 million children lead healthier lives by 2030

Today, more than 2 billion people in the world are overweight or obese, and 800 million are undernourished.

With Nestlé for Healthier Kids, we continue to act. Our global initiative launched in May 2018 federates all our efforts to support parents and caregivers on their journey to raise healthier kids. 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.

The three focus areas of the program

  • Nutrition knowledge: we seek a deeper understanding of the nutritional needs of children, their lifestyle habits and health status
  • Product innovation: to ensure our brands support a healthier journey, we have made forward-looking commitments to reduce sodium, sugars and saturated fats, and add healthy ingredients such as vegetables, fibre-rich grains and pulses
  • Programme and services: our brands help families adopt healthier habits through transparent information, simple recipes, cooking and lifestyle tips

Accelerating the transformation of our product portfolio

To ensure our brands support healthier lifestyles, we have already:

  • Removed over 40,000 tonnes of sugar and 6,200 tons of saturated fat since 2014;
  • Removed over 15,000 tonnes of salt since 2012;
  • Increased the number of micro-nutrient fortified food to 174 billion in 2017
  • 99.8% of our portfolio is free of trans-fatty acids (TFA)

We have also made forward-looking commitments:

  • Add 750 million portions (80g) of vegetables by 2020
  • Add 300 million portions (16g) of fiber-rich grains and pulses by 2020
  • Add at least 300 million portions (16g) of fiber-rich grains, pulses, nuts & seeds to products
  • Further reduce sugars by 5%
