Nestlé Australia Seeks To Strengthen Aboriginal Communities' Nutrition Education

November 20, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Nestlé launched the “Aboriginal Youth Development Programme” campaign, which aims to teach women and teenagers in Aboriginal communities in Australia the importance of nutrition and healthy eating. As part of the program, the company plans to expand several initiatives including the “Mother Daughter Nutrition Programme”, school-based training programs, training and development, and youth center volunteering. Data from the Australian Human Rights Commission revealed diabetes and heart diseases are among the leading causes of mortality and morbidity among the country’s indigenous people and more than half of indigenous people aged 15–64 years are unemployed, making Nestlé’s initiative timely.
