Supporting infant and child nutrition for a healthy start to life
Our Infant and Child Nutrition business is a key pillar in delivering on our purpose of providing innovative solutions for healthier lives and happier homes. We recognise that the right nutrition during the first 1000 days has a critical impact on a child’s ability to learn and thrive and provides the essential building blocks for brain development, healthy growth and a strong immune system.
We support and promote the recommendations of the World Health Organisation (WHO) for exclusive breastfeeding in the first six months of life, and the introduction of safe, age-appropriate and nutritious complementary foods thereafter. Further, we advocate continued breastfeeding up to two years of age and beyond.
For mothers who are not able to, or choose not to breastfeed, our role is to provide the highest quality products that help meet the nutritional needs of mothers, infants and children.
Infant and Child Nutrition Pledge
We have a key responsibility to ensure our marketing practices on Breast-Milk Substitutes (BMS) are ethical and responsible at all times. Our commitments and approach are outlined in our Infant and Child Nutrition Pledge and our BMS Marketing Policy.
