Nestlé wants to help individuals and families eat more healthily by providing clear nutritional information on our food and beverage products.
As part of an industry pledge in Europe in 2006, we launched Guideline Daily Amounts (GDA) on front-of-pack for Nestlé products. Where regulations allow we have also introduced GDA on products designed for children, to help parents make informed choices.
The GDA indicates nutritional values and percentages of the daily intakes for energy, fat, saturated fat, sugar and sodium/salt and key nutrients provided in a reference portion of the product.
The percentages are calculated against average intake levels that most people, in a given age group, are advised to consume daily for a healthy diet.
