Well-Being

WELL-BEING

Within “Well-being”, we promote our categories as a daily component of good health and well-being for everyone.

Scientific studies all make it clear: diet is a daily component of good health. Food is essential. Yet many consumers are not aware of that. Therefore, our teams are there to advise, inform, and provide guidelines and tools to a good diet, at all stages of life.

 

 

A POSITIVE TAKE ON NUTRITION/IMPROVING NUTRITION

 

Nutrition and lifestyle are unanimously recognized as key factors in establishing and maintaining good health. As a matter of fact, improving nutrition is a public health challenge in most countries. Either to limit the spread of lifestyle-related diseases (obesity, diabetes, etc.) or to put a stop to malnutrition.

Tackling these challenges by improving dietary habits takes effort from all sides. Danone intends to be part of the solution through its interaction with healthcare players (local health authorities, scientific communities, etc.).

 

 

 

 

RAISING AWARENESS ON EACH CATEGORY'S IMPACT

 Did you know that an international database on yoghurt existed? It details the nutritional properties of yoghurt and its specific contribution to dietary needs and balance in each country. Thanks to that, Dairy is enjoying new recognition.

Our Waters teams are waging a daily battle so that hydration and water become synonymous in areas favouring sugary drinks and sodas. Their goal? Enable children to develop good habits as early as possible. The many initiatives undertaken by Danone Institutes and our teams in the field have increased the number of educational programmes for beneficial product categories.

Early Life Nutrition is crucial for a child’s growth and development, especially during his first three years. Can you imagine? A young child needs up to six times more micronutrients per kg of body weight than an adult! That’s why Danone Nutricia Research teams work locally with experts and healthcare professionals, contributing to awareness-raising campaigns on the importance of nutrition in early life.

Our Medical Nutrition teams have adopted the same approach. They focus on educating people about the specific nutritional needs associated with age, health status and disease.

 

 

NUTRI-ECONOMIC INITIATIVES

Danone also stands as a pioneer in a new discipline: nutrition-economics, which seeks to assess the impact of diet on public health. To that end, the Group launched many initiatives.

Amongst them, a thorough literature analysis triggered by the Danone International Institute has been conducted in partnership with the University of Manitoba. An article entitled “Nutrition economics – food as an ally of public health” and co-authored by one of our scientists, was issued in the British Journal of Nutrition. The results of several research projects have been published in other renowned international journals. All these studies show that, by preventing various diseases, proper nutrition reduces healthcare costs.

 

 

PATRICK K. DISEASES & TARGETED-NUTRITION RESEARCH DIRECTOR

"As things stand today, living longer does not necessarily mean more years with a good quality of life. Hence the urgency of finding innovative solutions that extend the period of personal physical and intellectual autonomy. Nutrition can play a substantial role in elderly care, frailty and Alzheimer’s disease."
