Nestlé nutrition symposium

Did you know that your brain uses around a quarter of your body’s energy? The 12th Nestlé International Nutrition Symposium brings together leading scientists to explore the importance of nutrition for ‘Cognition & Brain Health’, the theme of this year’s event.

Starting on Thursday, October 22, the two-day symposium at Nestlé Research Center in Lausanne, Switzerland, will explore issues including how best to support infant cognition by nutritional means, and the development of nutritional strategies to delay the onset of cognitive decline in older people.
