NDNP: The Four Stages

  1. Stage 1: Gentle first foods
  2. Stage 2: New tastes
  3. Stage 3: Richer tastes and textures
  4. Junior: Strong foundation

Start Healthy Stay Healthy

  1. This program provides mum with integrated superior nutritional information and services on products which help her with the best feeding choices. We want the Nestlé Start Healthy Stay Healthy Program to become mother's partner throughout the exciting motherhood journey, from pregnancy to when her baby is 3 years old.

Developmental Milestones

  1. From the first moments of conception through the “ups and downs” of infancy each mother undertakes a special journey with her baby. During the baby’s journey many physiological and developmental changes take place which can be influenced by the nutritional choices made by her on behalf of her own health and that of her baby.

Integrated Feeding Plan (IFP)

  1. This is a science-based feeding program which provides assistance to mother’s on how to put together the optimal daily diet for their infants and young children. It integrates products from different food categories within the Nestlé Nutrition portfolio with breast milk and home-prepared foods to ensure their nutritional needs are met.
  2. The aim of the Nestlé IFP is to help mothers nurture happy, healthy babies by providing the following for each development stage:
  3. Science-based nutrition and feeding guidance 
  4. Healthy product choices   
  5. Healthy, balanced daily menus
