Good nutrition plays a role in the lives of people, beginning from conception, so it is important that individuals and families have tasty and healthy options to help them get more of the nutrients often missing from their diet.

The Nestlé Nutritional Profiling System (NNPS) evaluates the nutritional value of our products, helps in product development and continuous optimisation of nutritional compositions of our products. During NNPS evaluation, we determine how our products fit into a child’s or an adult’s daily diet. Nutrients such as sugars, saturated fats, trans-fats, salt and energy content as well as contributions from calcium, protein, fibre and whole grain sources are also measured.
