Why and how TO SELF-CHECK?

Did you know that 43% of breast cancer is found by women through self-checking?[2] Join the 56%[1] of women who regularly check their breasts themselves as a part of their routine; it only takes a few minutes every month to detect any early signs of breast cancer. The more often you examine your breasts, you will become more familiar with yourself and be able to recognize any changes in your breasts more easily.

We've tried to answer as many of your questions as possible. You can search them all here:

Do Nestlé products in emerging countries have more salt than products in developed/developing countries?

For the last 15 years we’ve been working to reduce the sodium (which is the major component of salt) in our breakfast cereals across the world, because we want to keep on making them more nutritious. Achieving consistency on all products, in all countries, takes time - so some may have more sodium than others. Our aim is for all our cereals – globally – to have the same reduced levels of sodium, with a target of less than 135mg per serving in all our children’s products.

What are the health and nutritional benefits of Nestlé Gluten Free Corn Flakes?

As well as being a healthy choice for people who want to reduce the amount of gluten in their diet, or have coeliac disease or a gluten intolerance, Gluten Free Corn Flakes are fortified with B-vitamins, folic acid and iron

How can I find foods made with whole grain?

Two things to remember: • Look for food labels where the word 'whole' appears in front of the name of the grain, like “whole wheat” or “wholemeal bread”. • For foods with more than one ingredient, make sure whole grain is listed towards the top of the ingredients list. The further up the list it is, the more whole grain has been used in the recipe. And look out for the percentage of whole grain. You should find this in the ingredients list too. It’s easy to know if a Nestlé breakfast cereal is made with whole grain: just look out for the Green Banner and whole grain tick on top of the box.

I’ve heard a low GI diet can help me lose weight. Is this true?

It’s too early to say. The science in this area is still emerging. There is evidence that low GI foods take longer to digest and help you feel satisfied for longer, but none that you’ll eat fewer calories at the next meal.
