Crucial Development During Early Years

Did you know: 50% of South African little children (3-5 years) still receive suboptimal nutrition widening the micronutrient gap?12

43% are Vitamin A-deficient which negatively affects their eyesight3

42% are zinc deficient, which may affect their ability to fight infection3

40% are iron deficient which results in extreme fatigue and slows growth and development3

Some key contributing factors are lack of balanced diet diverse in all food groups and continuous consumption of starchy food that is cheaper and filling. NESTLÉ ® NIDO ® 3+ looks to combat the micronutrient problem through tailored nutrition for South African pre-schoolers (3 -5 years).

The NEW and IMPROVED recipe is a source of key nutrients that may be lacking in South African pre-schoolers diets. Supporting their self-discovery.
