Nestle's El Mejor Nido ("The Best Nest") Launches Back-to-school Program Benefitting Hispanic Families And Their Schools

GLENDALE, Calif., Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nestle USA, under its El Mejor Nido ("The Best Nest") platform, celebrates the new school year with an exciting back-to-school program featuring free backpacks filled with Nestle products and school supplies, a Favorite Lunch Box contest, and a free downloadable, bilingual book.

El Mejor Nido leverages Nestles nutrition, health and wellness expertise to help Hispanic consumers nurture a fulfilling family life and stay connected to their culture. Through this new program, Nestle is continuing its long standing commitment to education, while helping to make going back to school easier. "Our El Mejor Nido Back-to-School program is designed to provide support and inspiration for Latino families" said Juan Carlos Motta, head of Nestle's Emerging Markets division. "We've created a terrific program that celebrates the start of the new school year and helps both families and their schools."

The El Mejor Nido Back-to-School program focuses on key multicultural elements of language, food and family, and includes the following elements:

    --  Backpack of School Supplies: The "Mochila Movement" Up to 700 families
        will receive a backpack ("mochila") valued at more than $50 filled with
        school supplies, Nestle products, coupons and the new bilingual book. To
        receive a backpack, families can apply online from August 6 - 24,
        answering questions such as, "What is your family doing to help your
        children stay connected to their culture?" Applications are being
        accepted at http://bitly.com/NestleBackToSchool.
    --  Favorite Lunch Box Contest: Moms can submit and exchange their favorite
        lunch box menu ideas for a chance for both the winner and their local
        school to each receive $1,000.  The exchange and contest runs from
        August 27 - September 21. More details and official rules can be found
        at Facebook.com/ElMejorNido after August 27.
    --  Bilingual e-Book: Nestle has designed and produced the second in a
        series of bilingual books. The new book "Poppy Learns Something Special"
        will be distributed in a free, bound paperback version in various
        retailers, while the first book "Poppy's Best Day Ever," is available as
        a free downloadable PDF at elmejornido.com. Research has shown that
        dual-language books like the Poppy series are an effective method for
        increasing a child's facility with two languages and can help Hispanic
        children stay culturally connected.
    --  Tips for Parents: Nestle has developed a series of tips ("Consejos
        Familiares") that Hispanic parents can follow to promote bilingual
        learning and help children stay connected with their cultures, which
        will be available on Facebook and the El Mejor Nido website after August
        24.
