New and improved recipe – NESTLÉ® NIDO® 3+
Every mom knows the struggle and strife when it comes to feeding kids. Have they had enough? Too much? Is their diet varied enough? How do I get them to eat more veggies? Then there’s the pressure to buy a variety of foods for a balanced diet, while staying within budget. Feeding kids is no walk in the park!
We’re proud to announce that our new and improved recipe for NESTLÉ® NIDO® 3+ is here to help. So, while we can’t do much about their picky eating habits, we can help put mom’s mind at ease.
|Perhaps you’ve seen the worrying stats on childhood nutrition in our country, with 50% of South Africa’s kids aged 3 to 5 not receiving proper nutrition. 1,2 And that 43% of our children don’t get enough vitamin A, which affects their eyesight. We also see that 40% of our local kids are iron-deficient, causing fatigue and negatively affecting growth and development. 3 Despite these sobering statistics, we have some good news. NESTLÉ® NIDO® 3+ is a powdered drink for growing children and a source of vitamin A and iron for growing South African preschoolers.|
|New and improved NESTLÉ® NIDO® 3+ is a source of immuno-nutrients (zinc, vitamins A, C, D and E) that support the normal functioning of your child’s immune system. A well-supported immune system is associated with fewer trips to the doctor, and more time for playing. NESTLÉ® NIDO® 3+ also contains Lactobacillus rhamnosus, live cultures that contribute to a balanced digestive and immune system. Because, ultimately, a healthy gut equals a happy child. Omega-3 fatty acid with added DHA is an essential fatty acid that supports normal brain functioning and learning. The new and improved NESTLÉ® NIDO® 3+ is a source of omega-3 with added DHA to complement your child’s diet. The vitamin D contributes to normal absorption of calcium and phosphorus and the maintenance of normal blood calcium, supporting normal growth and development so that they can do what they do best – play and grow!|
|So, as you sit around the table, or on the picnic blanket for your next meal or snack, why not add in a drink that is a source of nutrients and omega-3 fatty acids with added DHA, and that contains good gut bacteria. We’ve improved our recipe to meet the specific needs of South African children, so you don’t have to stress about your fussy eaters.|
