Stop Underhanded Marketing by Nestlé in Newark and Michigan
Tell Mayor Booker and Governor Snyder: Infant Formula and Junk Food Maker is No Nutritional Expert
Can one of the world's largest producers of infant formula be trusted to promote breastfeeding and healthy eating in our communities? That’s what Nestlé wants us to believe. It’s partnering with the city of Newark and the state of Michigan on initiatives meant to fight childhood obesity.
But Nestlé is clearly interested in bolstering its bottom line, not children’s health. A company that makes products that contribute to childhood obesity is hardly a good source of nutritional expertise for cities struggling to get kids on track for a lifetime of healthy eating.
Let’s stop Nestlé’s initiatives in Newark and Michigan before similar programs from Nestlé start showing up in other communities.
Send an email to Newark Mayor Cory Booker and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder urging them to protect the health of kids, not the profits of multinational corporations.
