The updated Nestle product boycott list

I took this from another blog. This is important. We Formula Feed right now, and while I have no problems with Formula feeding I am very Pro Breastfeeding as well. I personally didn't make it very long with my first two boys, but I made it to just past 9 months with my third, (I had to quit nursing because of the pregnancy). I plan to make it to a year with number 4. 



As promised, here is the updated Nestlé product list (current as of Oct. 7, 2009). The information below came from Nestlé USA product list, Corporate Watch, Gerber and Nestlé Brands.


Don’t know what the Nestle boycott is all about? Educate yourself. Check out my post, Annie’s (PhDinParenting’s) post and Best for Babies’ Anthology of Activist Blogs & Twitter Names. Remember, knowledge is power.
