Childhood Obesity

   

Nestlé USA supports the goal of the First Lady’s Let’s Move campaign to end childhood obesity within a generation. We agree that industry has an important role to play, and that reducing childhood obesity requires a multi-faceted approach. We believe that balanced nutrition and regular physical activity are critical for maintaining optimal health and are dedicated to providing our consumers with delicious, high quality foods and beverages that can be enjoyed as part of a nutritious diet, clear nutritional information, as well as educational tools to support a healthy lifestyle.

Nestlé USA is a member of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation (HWCF), a partnership between more than 160 of the nation's largest retailers, non-profit organizations, food and beverage manufacturers and trade associations aimed at helping to reduce childhood obesity.

Nestlé has partnered with the National Education Association Health Information Network to create Healthy Steps for Healthy Lives, our award-winning nutrition and physical activity program. The Healthy Steps for Healthy Lives program is designed to support teachers’ ongoing efforts to educate students about being healthy.
