Nestlé Baby & me is committed to nurturing healthier generations through early nutrition education and support.
Our humble beginnings
In 1867, Henri Nestlé developed a milk-based food for babies unable to feed from their mothers. Within five years, Nestlé Milk was being sold around the world as a food for babies. Rapid development followed and Nestlé soon diversified into other areas with the introduction of a condensed milk product, followed by a move into the growing chocolate industry.
Although Henri bowed out of the Company in 1875, the name was retained and in 1905 it merged with the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company to form a dynamic new venture known simply as Nestlé. We have since then continued to develop through product innovation and acquisitions.
We believe nutrition is more than just you and your baby’s dietary habits. It is about nurturing healthier generations through the right early nutrition from pregnancy and beyond.
With over 155-year history of continuous research and innovation, Nestlé has teamed up with nutritional experts, researchers and healthcare professionals to provide parents with parenting and nutrition information they can trust.
What lies ahead
Nestlé Baby & me is continually looking at new ways to support parents and caregivers, finding solutions and providing evidence-based information on nutrition.

The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding during the first 6 months of life and continued breastfeeding for as long as possible. As babies grow at different paces, health professionals should advise the mother on the appropriate time when her baby should start receiving complementary foods.
