Sharing nutrition knowledge throughout life

, Boston University School of Medicine, USA.
  • , University of Western Australia.
  • , Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich.
  • In 2018, these three programs reached more than 7700 healthcare professionals in 82 countries, with over 90% completing the courses. Feedback was very positive: the . It found that:

    • Over a quarter of young children in the US do not consume a single discrete serving of vegetables on a given day, and those that do often have fried potatoes as their daily portion of vegetables.
    • More infants (6–11.9 months old) are falling short on iron than at any other time in the study’s history. Iron is a critical nutrient for learning ability and brain development.

    These findings are critical to understanding nutrition in the US today and to help policymakers explore the role of iron-fortified cereals, infant formulas and baby-food meats in the effort to improve nutrient intakes.

    How the , we analyzed data from the national nutrition survey to gain a broader picture of the nutritional needs of Filipino children. We found that there is not enough variety in the diets of Filipino children, with large amounts of refined rice and sweet baked goods and not enough consumption of milk, vegetables, fruits and meats. This particularly affects poorer families, who are more likely to have inadequate diets.

    Identifying these nutritional gaps allows us to address them directly through new and renovated products, as well as indirectly, through knowledge sharing.

    How potassium-fortified milk powder can help save lives

    In China, we worked with leading cardiovascular experts to assess the effectiveness of milk powder fortified with potassium in reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke – among the leading causes of death in the country.

    To lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, the WHO . In China, however, dietary intake is often the reverse: too much salt and not enough potassium. This is particularly true among older people. showed that by fortifying milk powder with potassium, it’s possible to easily and inexpensively reduce the risk of cardiovascular events among 50–79-year-olds who drink milk regularly.

    This study is exciting: it shows we can improve people’s health while saving society an estimated USD 8.41 billion (CHF 8.53 billion) in healthcare costs. We are also reviewing the results of a similar study conducted in Malaysia.

    Sharing our findings

    In 2018, we published findings on the burden and management of gestational diabetes in Mexico and Italy, highlighting the proportion of pregnancies affected and the increased cost, and shared the findings on Mexico at the World Congress of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Brazil.

    Supporting healthy aging

    Protein plays a critical role in maintaining health and can help healthy aging. Higher protein intake has been positively associated with higher bone mass density, slower rates of bone loss and preservation of muscle mass. However, it is estimated that more than one in three adults aged over 50 are not receiving their minimum daily protein requirements. Many suffer from lack of appetite or are on reduced budgets, and there is often little awareness that protein should be consumed at each meal throughout the day.

    To support the growing population of people over 50, Nestlé Health Science BOOST US has launched a multimedia protein education campaign aimed at consumers, retailers and healthcare professionals. The campaign features online facts, tips and articles, an interactive protein calculator that provides daily protein intake estimates, a toolkit for healthcare professionals using the latest science on protein intake and healthy aging, and retail promotional tie-ins with healthy aging themes.
