NESTLÉ® DEVELOPMENTAL NUTRITION PLAN (NDNP)™
Wondering which foods your baby can enjoy at each stage of her development?
The NESTLÉ® DEVELOPMENTAL NUTRITION PLAN (NDNP)™ is a plan that helps mothers give their babies the very best start in life and develop healthy eating habits that they can carry into adulthood.
The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding during your baby’s first 6 months and continued breastfeeding for as long as possible. As babies grow at different paces, health professionals should advise you on the appropriate time to start on complementary foods.
Stage 1: Gentle first food
It’s time to introduce solid foods into her menu. Our single grain cereals are smooth and light on your baby's stomach, helping her move from milk to solid food.
> Stage 1
Stage 2: New tastes
It’s time to try some new tastes… like different kinds of puréed fruits, vegetables and infant cereals. Your baby can now swallow something more solid. Her digestive system has developed, her stomach is growing larger and her system less fragile. After 6 months, your baby is beginning to push forward, hold toys firmly and look for them when they’re misplaced.
> Stage 2
Stage 3: Richer tastes and textures
Your baby can’t get enough variety of flavours? Then she is moving in the right direction – both physically and nutritionally. Now that she can consume meat and fish, it’s time to introduce her to a few new tastes and textures.
> Stage 3
Stage 4: Ready to try more!
Your baby is ready for more. More tastes, more variety, more recipes! Now it’s time to try some chunkier fruits and vegetables, and soon, your baby’s first birthday cake. Your little one is climbing the nutritional ladder. What incredible progress!
