shaping the political agenda

Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition is opening up discussions with policymakers to make nutrition in the early years a public health priority. We believe it should be a bigger part of the conversation surrounding children's health.

 

We work with leading experts and influencers to raise awareness of the importance of early life nutrition and to identify practical solutions that will enable parents, families and other caregivers to make informed choices about how to feed their babies and young children.

 

By improving the nutritional health of pregnant women and young children during the first 1000 days of life, we believe this will improve children’s long-term health outcomes and the health of future generations.

big conversation

In 2014, we brought together 60 parents, carers and healthcare professionals to share their thoughts and feelings about nutrition from pregnancy to pre-school.

 

We came away from the discussion with some valuable insights about how the barriers to good early life nutrition present themselves in everyday lives. With a number of different people caring, shopping for and feeding young children in today’s society, a single common vision and consistent, clear guidance regarding early life nutrition is more important than ever.

NGO PARTNERSHIPS

TOMMY’S

Since 2011 we have partnered with Tommy's in a variety of ways, helping to fund over £160,000 of Tommy’s research into the impact of maternal obesity on the child. Given that half of all pregnant women in the UK are now overweight or obese at the start of pregnancy, this is a growing cause for concern.

 

Funding has enabled Tommy’s to carry out research trials and develop best practice guidelines for managing pregnancy in obese women. 

 

The partnership has also enabled Tommy’s to celebrate midwives who have gone over and above the call of duty to help mothers make lifestyle changes which result in healthier pregnancies.

CARERS UK

There are 6.5 million people across the UK who support a family member or friend who is older, disabled or seriously ill. Looking after a loved one can be incredibly rewarding, but it can also be very tough. Carers often don’t know how or where to get help.
 
Working with Carers UK, we found that 60% of carers worry about the nutrition of the person they care for. Through our partnership we raise awareness of the importance of good nutrition for carers and for those they are looking after. With the support of our in-house nutritionists we have delivered a series of social media days around nutrition and provide a range of free information leaflets and expert online advice.

 

With Carers UK, we helping to make life better for carers.
