Healthy diets and lifestyles
Our commitment: Promote healthy diets and lifestyles, including physical activity
We aim to help children understand the role that nutrition plays in their lives and how to balance good nutrition with an active lifestyle. The Nestlé Healthy Kids Global Programme focuses on nutrition education and physical activity, providing information on balanced diets, positive approaches to food and practical advice on improving eating habits.
By 2015: Nestlé Healthy Kids Global Programme will be ongoing in 80 countries to improve the nutrition, health and wellness of children around the world.
By 2018: We commit to maintaining existing Nestlé Healthy Kids Global programmes, while measuring their impact on children based on five globally defined goals.
By the end of 2015, we exceeded our objective of having a Nestlé Healthy Kids Global Programme active in 80 countries.
At the global level, we developed an evaluation framework to align measurement and reporting based on five goals around balanced meals, portion control, drinking water, being active and maintaining good hygiene habits. By the end of 2015, Nestlé was working with 285 partners to deliver the programme to 8 million children. In 2015, our total spend on the Nestlé Healthy Kids Global Programme was CHF 15 million.
