About Mother’s Smart Choice

Mother’s Smart Choice programme helps mothers take charge of kids’ health.

Mothers have always been concerned about their children’s nutrition. Should the baby be breastfed? When should she start feeding the baby solid food? Making good nutritional choices for their babies can be challenging, especially when many mothers today are juggling work and home responsibilities.

To address these mothers’ concerns, the NSM spearheaded a three-phase programme, Mother’s Smart Choice (MSC), which aims to promote good infant nutrition and offer practical tips that the working mother can incorporate into her daily schedule. MSC was launched in 2011 in collaboration with the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Malaysia (OGSM), Malaysian Paediatric Association (MPA) and the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN).

Healthy Kids Programme

About Healthy Kids Programme in Malaysia‚Äč

The objective of this programme is to improve nutrition knowledge and promote healthy lifestyles among school-going children in Malaysia. This programme is timely in view of the significant prevalence of nutrition-related problems, such as nutrient deficiencies and obesity, among Malaysian schoolchildren.

The Healthy Kids Programme in Malaysia was launched in August 2010 with the theme “Let’s Be Healthy!” or “Jom Sihat!”. The Programme is targeted towards children aged between 7–12 years and is part of Nestlé’s global programme, which aims to raise nutrition, health and wellness awareness among school-aged children around the world through better eating habits, increased physical activities and other key health measures.

Handy Tips and Happy Tales
To make kids (and mommies) smile (in English and Bahasa Malaysia)

Feeding young children can be a very challenging affair. They may be picky,
playful, distracted or simply have a poor appetite. Try to make them eat and they might just burst into a tantrum! As frustrating as this may seem, such behaviour is actually part and parcel of growing up. So, instead of getting upset, parents would do well to focus on how to prevent or manage such situations. Nutrition Society of Malaysia and Philips AVENT have teamed up to help you do just that. This lighthearted booklet has been developed especially moms sharing their secrets for happy, healthy mealtimes. After that, comes a host of helpful offerings, including nutrition facts, creative recipes, tips for selecting an appropriate toddler feeding range, as well as delightful stories to nourish young minds while whetting the appetite. This booklet will be followed by educational articles in the press as well as various events. Through these efforts, we hope that more parents and their children will discover the magic of happy, healthy mealtimes and come to cherish those moments for life.
