Our 2030 ambition: Help 50 million children to lead healthier lives

Our 2030 ambition is to help 50 million children lead healthier lives. Nestlé is the world’s largest food and beverage company, with the widest portfolio. Our work to improve the nutritional profile of our products, promote healthy lifestyles and physical activity, and conduct research is helping us pave a path toward improved health. Here are some of the ways we continued to help shape healthy diets and lifestyles and improve overall wellness in the U.S.

Offering tastier and healthier choices



Because we want to encourage healthy diets and address malnutrition in all its forms, from undernutrition to overnutrition.

100% of children’s products met the Nestlé Nutritional Foundation (NF) criteria for children, representing an appropriate choice within a balanced diet.

1,830 products reformulated to consider nutrition or consumer preference, including reduced sodium, sugar, trans fat, artificial colors and flavors, and increased essential nutrients.

Inspiring people to lead healthier lives



Because by giving individuals and families the best start in life and supporting them through all stages of life, we are nurturing a healthy generation

95% of our Nestlé USA products deliver portion guidance.

93% of applicable products have Facts Up Front labels.

54,500 kids participated in our National Fitness Competition in partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

Building, sharing and applying nutrition knowledge



Because through our nutrition knowledge and research findings, we can make a positive contribution to society and help address some of today’s key public health and nutrition challenges.

$1.8 billion invested in nutrition research and development worldwide.

3,000 parents and caregivers surveyed through our Feeding Infants and Toddlers Study to improve knowledge of current eating patterns of infants and young children.

Pets are part of the family. Nestlé Purina is working to help pets live longer, healthier lives by pushing nutrition forward in the areas of healthy aging, healthy metabolism, oral and digestive health, and early development of kittens and puppies.

Contributing to a healthier future means holding ourselves to the highest standard, whether it’s food quality, community engagement, or our continued commitment to sustainability. Paul Grimwood, Chairman and CEO of Nestlé USA

Around the World

The UN believes the food industry has a vital role to play in helping enable healthier lives. At Nestlé we believe this too. We want to help shape a better and healthier world. This was how we started more than 150 years ago when our founder Henri Nestlé created an infant cereal that saved the life of a child.

Today we support individuals and their families with tastier and healthier choices. We know how important it is that people can enjoy a healthy diet so we are reducing salt, sugar and saturated fats in our products. We are also adding more wholegrains, fiber, and vegetables. In countries where it is needed we fortify our products with essential nutrients, helping people to eat healthier.
