Nestlé for Healthier Kids Programme
The Nestlé for Healthier Kids Programme is a global initiative that aims to establish healthier habits by enhancing knowledge, altering attitudes, and providing tools and solutions that encourage behaviour change. It epitomises Nestlé’s commitment to nutrition, health and wellness. It was launched in 2011, in Trinidad and Tobago and in Jamaica and is currently endorsed by the Ministry of Education in Trinidad. The 3-6-year long programme targets primary school children and aims to instil healthy habits that will take them through life, healthily and happily. The programme captivates students using a variety of activities to make healthy living attractive and interesting. The program has a presence in over 30 schools in Trinidad and in Jamaica.
Nestlé for Healthier Kids Parents’ Forums
Nestlé understands that parents are major influencers in the lives of children. As such, the Nestlé for Healthier Kids Programme engages parents in Trinidad and in Jamaica with knowledge and information to help them make healthier choices as it relates to their children’s nutrition and physical habits. Topics include the six food groups, hydration, portion control, childhood obesity and other health related topics. The information empowers parents to enforce healthy habits in their children.
International Chefs Day
International Chefs Day takes place on or around October 20 every year. Nestlé for Healthier Kids and Nestlé Professional team up to educate children globally about the importance of healthy eating, expose them to the culinary profession and teach them good eating habits. In Jamaica and Trinidad, we invite children to enjoy interactive sessions with local chefs where they not only learn about the career but are also given the opportunity to learn to prepare tasty, healthy meals and snacks with an ultimate goal of transforming the way they view healthy food.
