Nestlé is the worst of the baby food companies, pushing baby milk around the world using strategies that are prohibited by international marketing standards. It also refuses to warn of risks from formula and how to reduce them. Nestlé knows that babies fed on formula are more likely to become sick than breastfed babies and, in conditions of poverty, more likely to die. It puts its own profits before health. The boycott gives it a financial reason to think again and helps force changes.
