Nourishing foundations … ready, steady, go!


5 mins to read Jun 29, 2021

We share your outlook on life, because we also believe in the power of nourishing foundations

The amount of food that a pre-school child consumes is small compared to what adults eat every day, and this causes some parents to disregard the importance of making healthy nutritional choices on their child’s behalf.

Similarly, when their children attend pre-school, parents often downplay the importance of their own efforts when helping their child develop their character and learning abilities at home, because they’re not “trained educators”.

NESTLÉ® NANKID® 4 is a premium drink for growing children. It provides a unique combination of high-quality ingredients.


There are 4 major reasons to choose NESTLÉ® NANKID® 4 for 3 to 5-year-olds.

  1. It contains HMO.
  2. It contains OPTIPRO® (source of protein), the right quality and quantity of proteins.
  3. It is a source of Omega-3 (with DHA*), and Omega-6.
  4. It contains BIFIDUS (a naturally active culture).


*DHA: Docosahexaenoic Acid

The truth is that the strength of a building’s foundation determines what it will eventually be able to carry.

The nutrients that we provide for our pre-school children by making healthy food choices are crucial for nourishing their little bodies towards optimal growth and development. As a result, our decisions about what they eat and drink now will most likely impact their health and well-being for the rest of their lives. 1

Similarly, the one-on-one educational experiences that we create for them at home are crucial for preparing them to reach their full potential at school, on the sports field and in life. 2

Ultimately, just as a tall building requires a strong foundation to stabilise it, no child will be able to reach phenomenal heights in any area of life without the benefit of having a strong early foundation.

Parents make the biggest difference

Individual children act differently when they find themselves in a classroom situation. Some are engaged and actively learning, some are disruptive, unable to pay attention or follow directions, and many are merely onlookers.

This happens because children need to be taught basic skills at home to prepare them to be able to process information, focus their attention and develop the skills they need to communicate, collaborate, concentrate and be confident amongst their peers. 2

In other words, the conversations and playful one-on-one interactions that children have with their parents at home are invaluable for laying certain foundations that are bound to have a lifelong impact.
