Nestlé has launched facebook pages where parents and mothers-to-be can source guidance and expert advice on good nutrition for their babies.

Nestlé's new Start Healthy Stay Healthy Facebook pages are available in Ghana and Nigeria.

Philippe Hascoet, Country Business Manager for Nestlé Nutrition in Central and West Africa said the online social platforms, which are now live, are part of Nestlé Start Healthy Stay Healthy - a science-based education programme designed to help mothers and caregivers provide nutritionally and developmentally adequate nutrition in the first 1,000 days of a baby's life.

"Posts on what to eat during pregnancy, breastfeeding tips, as well as how and when to introduce weaning foods, are shared through messages, images and videos to help the first-time mothers in Ghana and Nigeria make the best decisions during the first 1,000 days of baby's life," he said.
