Nes­tle’s health­ier al­ter­na­tive

The Sun (Malaysia) - - MEDIA & MARKETING -

NES­TLE re­cently launched Nes­tle Cheerios Oat Crisp, aimed to drive aware­ness on the im­por­tance of early and proac­tive heart care.


The launch of the break­fast ce­real re­sulted from find­ings from the Health Min­istry, which re­ported that heart at­tack was the main cause of a quar­ter of all hos­pi­tal fa­tal­i­ties. The find­ings also sug­gested that half of the Malaysian pop­u­la­tion suf­fer from high choles­terol, which is one of the causes of a heart at­tack.

“We are what we eat. If we of­ten con­sume fatty foods and dishes with high choles­terol con­tent, our body will have dif­fi­cul­ties break­ing down the oil and fat, which may re­sult in clogged ar­ter­ies and heart fail­ure.

“This rea­son alone should make us start adopt­ing a health­ier diet con­tain­ing all food groups, such as whole grains and oats,” said con­sul­tant di­eti­tian In­dra Balarat­nam dur­ing the event pre­sen­ta­tion.


Nes­tle Break­fast Ce­real coun­try busi­ness man­ager Nir­malah Thu­rai added that the ce­real was cre­ated to suit busy life­styles many face to­day. It also pro­vides a health­ier al­ter­na­tive. Present at the launch were singer and fit­ness en­thu­si­ast Atilia Haron and ac­tor/model Steve Yap – both who lost their fa­thers to heart at­tacks and each, strong ad­vo­cates in main­tain­ing good heart health and healthy life­styles.
