MOM CHEAT SHEET: Protecting and nourishing your child in the new normal

Nestlé NANKID introduces their best formulation* yet and here’s all you need to know *vs previous formulation


Parenting may be the most challenging job, but by raising the future of tomorrow, it is also the most rewarding. With the world living through these unprecedented times, parenting now comes with even more challenges, which unfortunately does not come with a guidebook.

Living in a “new normal” means a drastic change to our everyday. For a parent, this ranges from managing a full household to shifting to homeschooling or distance learning. To add to that, there is also the looming fear of contracting sickness at the most unwelcome time. Needless to say, our current reality comes with even more uncertainties than we could have prepared for.

With all these challenges, parents are continuously looking for ways to not only strive, but instead, thrive in in these trying times. At the top of the list is ensuring their family is strong and healthy, making them better prepared for whatever may come. This is even more crucial for children growing up who need a strong, healthy body today to have a future full of possibles.

When you cannot watch over your child’s every movement, you are left relying on a strong immune system to keep your child safe from sickness. But first, what is the immune system and how does it help you? The immune system— built and developed from nutrient intake— protects the body from toxins, infections, and microorganisms. Boosting immunity can be done in many ways— from providing proper nutrition through macronutrients and micronutrients, to giving only the best that science has to offer:

  • Optimized protein – An exclusive, optimized protein blend that is high in quality that may support age-appropriate weight gain and development.
  • Bifidus BL Probiotics – Extensive research has proven that a type of live bacteria, specifically known as the probiotic B. Lactis, supports immunity by strengthening the gut and maintaining balance among bacteria.
  • Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HM-O) – The third largest solid component in human milk, HM-Os promote the growth of beneficial bacteria, assists gut barrier function, prevents pathogen adhesion in the gut, and directly modulates the immune system.

With the even more pressing need to strengthen immunity, parents are faced with another challenge of researching what’s best for their children. When the overwhelming amount of information leaves them uncertain, they have to cut through the clutter and only trust what’s credible; choose what’s science-proven.

Backed by over 150 years of Nestle’s nutrition and scientific expertise, NANKID® OPTIPRO® FOUR’s advanced formulation, guaranteed to be its best formulation yet, is now made even better with HM-O.

This highly innovative and scientifically designed formula provides children with all they need and more. It is not only packed with optimized protein— a high quality, low quantity protein that is optimal for age-appropriate weight gain and development— but it also contains Probiotics, and is made with zero sucrose.

As the only one clinically proven to support optimal growth and immunity, parents can be assured that their children can be ready for a life full of amazing possibles with NANKID® OPTIPRO® FOUR.

Through its first-ever interactive virtual event “The Science of Nourishing Possibles”, NANKID® gave parents a world-class experience to understand how science-proven NANKID® can be every parent’s partner in navigating through these unprecedented times.

“Raising children in this current environment can be rather daunting for parents who want to protect their kids while also allowing them to develop and grow. This is why Nestlè is proud to launch NANKID® OPTIPRO® FOUR, now with HM-O. Through this advanced formulation, we are confident that we can support parents in their parenting journey by providing them a scientifically-backed powdered milk drink formulated to provide optimal growth and immunity that will help prepare children for a life full of amazing possibles,” said [Nestle Premium Milks Lead] Aubrey Iñigo.
