To persuade Nestlé to stop misleading baby milk marketing - like claiming it "protects" babies and is the "gentle start".
Nestlé breaks the baby milk marketing rules adopted by the United Nations World Health Assembly. It does this in many ways, but one of the most visible is putting logos on its baby milk claiming it is the "natural start" and "gentle start" for babies and "protects" them. Executives know that babies fed on baby milks are more likely to become sick than breastfed babies. In conditions of poverty they are are more likely to die. After a shaming campaign in 2014, Nestlé agreed to stop claiming its milk formula is the "natural start". But executives continue to defend other misleading claims - your support will increase the pressure.
