Nutrition Health and Wellness

At Nestlé, our goal is to be the recognized leader in Nutrition Health & Wellness. We believe that the enjoyment of food and beverages is harmoniously linked to life and living at its best. We are committed to offering products that nourish your body, raise your spirits, delight your taste buds, honor the environment and help you celebrate the people you love.

At Nestlé, we recognize three dimensions in Nutrition, Health and Wellness:

  • Pleasure: Winning consumer preferences on taste and pleasure while enhancing the nutritional value of our products.
  • Balance: Encouraging responsible nutrition and moderation and variety of food habits. There is no such thing as bad food.
  • Understanding: Providing clear nutritional advice and information to help consumers make informed choices about their diet and lifestyle.

Healthy Kids Make Healthy Adults
A ground-breaking study called EarlyBird was set up to explore the biology of growing children, how metabolic disorders develop in childhood and their consequences in adulthood. I lead the Nestlé team that is involved in this research.

Our research shows that by monitoring children during crucial stages of their development, we can accurately identify those at risk of developing metabolic disorders, better understand how these diseases develop and hopefully, eventually intervene nutritionally to prevent the onset of these conditions.

Plant Based Proteins: The Meat Alternative That Is Good For Your Health And The Planet
It's rare that an idea or solution comes along that solves a variety of problems facing the world. Plant-based proteins is one of those. Whether it is human health, animal welfare, deforestation or climate change (or all of those) that concerns you, consuming more plant-based proteins can offer a simple (and tasty) way to make a positive contribution to solving them.

The food system is changing. It always has, but now it needs to change to reduce waste and optimise the use of plant proteins. Challenges like these have led the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, of which Nestlé is a member, to work on a new programme called FReSH - Food Reform for Sustainability and Health. FReSH will focus on the solutions that businesses can bring, and proteins will be at the centre.

WASH Your Hands: How a Simple Well Helps Create a Strong and Healthy Community
Clean water is one of the few things in life that never fails to live up to expectations. It is difficult to overstate the importance of having it. Really difficult. In fact, it’s probably impossible. Clean water changes almost everything.

How Basil is Helping a Community Get Back to Work, Grow Local, and Save Water
You probably cook with basil in your kitchen — for most of us it’s a staple herb, and not something we give much thought to as we chop it up and sprinkle it into our food. For a community in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, basil is more than just a flavor enhancer: it’s a way to reintegrate back into the community, to grow food sustainably, and sell that food locally to chefs at organizations like Nestlé Professional.

When Cheese isn’t Cheese
We all want to enjoy food that tastes great. Ask any American what their favorite food is, chances are they’ll tell you something delicious… but not necessarily healthy. Pizza, for example, is one of America’s favorite foods — according to some studies, Americans eat 3 billion pizzas a year. That’s 350 slices of pizza every second!
