Nestlé has met one of its nutrition commitments for 2015 with the launch of the Nestlé Healthy Kids Programme in Jordan. It marks the 80th country the programme has reached.

Nestlé announced a number of public commitments to society in 2013 in areas relevant to the company’s operations – nutrition, water, rural development, sustainability and compliance. The company aims to meet these by 2020 or earlier and reports regularly on the progress made.

As part of its commitment to ‘Promote healthy diets and lifestyles, including physical activity’, Nestlé pledged to extend its Nestlé Healthy Kids Programme from 73 to 80 countries this year.

The Nestlé Healthy Kids Programme was launched in 2009 to raise awareness of nutrition and healthier lifestyles among school-age children. The company hopes to help encourage better health choices from an early age into adulthood.

Working together with almost 300 partners from local governments, universities, scientific institutions and child nutrition associations, the programme has reached more than 7.5 million children worldwide.
