About Nestlé Nutrition
Gerber partners with Nestlé Nutrition
The makers of GERBER®, the world’s most trusted name in baby food, have partnered with the NESTLÉ® GOOD START® infant formula experts to help you raise happy, healthy infants and toddlers—for now, and for many generations to come.
Together with Nestlé Nutrition, we’ve created the START HEALTHY, STAY HEALTHY™ Resource Center to provide GERBER and NESTLÉ GOOD START consumers with advice and nutrition and feeding guidance, as well as great offers on products.
Why nutrition is so important
Did you know that a baby who receives the right nutrition in his first year is much more likely to be healthy throughout the rest of his life? That’s why Gerber is committed to developing food products that are trusted, safe, and nutritious. And Nestlé Nutrition is aiding to achieve this important goal.
Nestlé Nutrition is already the source of nutrition information and the science-based innovation behind GOOD START formulas. Now Gerber can build on its own expertise by drawing on the incredible worldwide network of Nestlé scientists, researchers, and dietitians who bring the very latest in nutrition science to you and your child. That’s good news for babies everywhere.
The science of great food
At the heart of every GERBER product lies a network of knowledge developed internally since 1928. And now we have the opportunity to further enhance our leadership position by working with the Nestlé Research Center (NRC). The NRC is the world’s largest private food and nutrition research institute, comprising more than 300 PhD scientists within the Nestlé Research & Development network. That includes eight Product Technology Centers (PTCs) and eight R&D centers.
Commitment to the WHO code
In addition to our commitment to Start Healthy, Stay Healthy programs, Gerber and Nestlé Nutrition have a long-standing tradition of adhering to the World Health Organization (WHO) International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes.
Science-based nutrition products
Nestlé Nutrition started with Henri Nestlé, a pharmacist who created a special infant formula in 1867.
