NIDO (also written 'Nido') is a powdered milk supplement manufactured by Nestlé.

About[edit]

Nido is a Dry Whole Milk as opposed to Non or Low Fat Milk. Because of this it has a creamier flavor and more calories. [1]

Although there is no age recommendation,[2] marketing is featured around children over three years of age with the tagline "Nutritious Milk for Growing Kids". Nido boasts a fortified formula that includes calcium and vitamin D, and is said to contribute to over twenty essential ingredients a growing child needs.

Criticism[edit]

The nutritionally-enriched product has become a competitor for other milk-based drinks. It also faces scrutiny from supporters of natural milk consumption, including those who promote breastfeeding.[citation needed]

Availability[edit]

Nido is available in Mexico, Asia (under the name Nespray, except the Philippines where it is still Nido), Middle East, most of Africa, most of South America and Canada. Nido is also available in some parts of the United States. Usually, Nido is found in most Wal-Marts in the Hispanic Foods aisle. It has also recently become available in the UK.

Other meanings[edit]

Nido (student living) is also a brand of independent student accommodation in the United Kingdom. Its first building opened in King's Cross, North London, in September 2007.

In Spain, Nestlé Purina PetCare sells bird food under the brand Nido.[3]
