Nestlé Responds To Golden Morn Discussion by Seun(m): 8:34am On Oct 22, 2012
Hello Peterwins. Thanks for your comment on Nestlé Golden Morn. I’m Iquo Ukoh from Nestlé Nigeria.

We apologise for the confusion caused by the information which was added to the product label in June, 2012. The product was labelled as “Golden Morn is not an infant cereal. Not suitable for children below 3 years” as a precautionary measure because it is not formulated as an infant or weaning cereal.

We have decided to modify the label to avoid any further inconvenience. We continue to clearly mention it is not an infant cereal.

We always communicate information that help consumers make informed purchasing decision and we encourage our consumers to choose a variety of foods to meet daily nutritional requirements.

Here's a follow-up statement from Nestle addressing the reason for the label change:
In our efforts to improve the information we provide on our packaging, we decided to change the statement in June 2012, which coincided with a packaging and recipe change we have done on Nestlé Golden Morn to make your favorite cereal more nutritious and delicious. And we are delighted to inform you that Nestlé Golden Morn is now fortified with iron and vitamin A.

Nestlé would like to assure you that Golden Morn is a nutritious cereal that is absolutely good to consume by adults and children as part of a varied diet and is produced from best quality Maize and Soya grains however it’s not developed for infants because it’s not an infant nor weaning cereal.

Be rest assured that the primary concern of Nestlé is to provide their valued consumers with the best quality , nutritious and delicious food.

For further enquiry please contact our Consumer Services line on 01-7940425

No room for excuses when it comes to human lives and especially babies. This people should be charged to court. Some babies who have used it will have something turned up or negatively in their behavior. That's why you see some kids behaving irrational when clocking age 5, 6, 7.

These golden morn folks are crazy. My daugther started it since 18 months and now she is 4. My boy has been on it for the past six months and now he is two. And all we hear from these guys is that it is not cereal.
I don't know what SON/NAFDAC are doing in this country. If not nairaland, I wouldn't have known. My major check always is expiry date and nutrient content. I just noticed this development and the folks are here saying that it has been on since July.
All lies.

Nestle is nt to blame here, if anyone is to blame here, then it is d person that bought it and has been feeding d baby with d golden morn. It was stated on d pack dat it isnt 4 infant feeding, so blame urself dat u failed 2 read it.
It is only an illiterate dat will check for expiry date and nutritive content only, on any food product, you shld read evrything on d pack. At least there are other cereals dat are 4 babies only, in d market? Or isnt a baby supposed to be on brestmilk xclusively 4 d 1st two yrs?

Golden Morn is only suitable(i.e GOOD)for children of 3yrs or older,so Nestle is not responsible for any digestibility complications arising from parents feeding their children under the age mentioned.

The MODIFICATION is on what Peterwins stated about clarity/legibility of such a sensitive information and they hope to make amends to that.

I feel your pain brother cos my baby is also under 3 and Im gonna stop it till he's 3.We need to thank Peterwins for being so observant.

This also goes to all that we should endeavor to check the labels of all items we buy before consumption.The labels are not just for adverts,they contain regulatory enhanced information to protect the right of consumers.I have lost count of times I have called attention of groceries owners to product expiry.

We need to look out for expiry or best before dates,Manufacturing dates,Nafdac numbers,look out for allergy sensitive ingredients (e.g Some people are allergic to Soya beans),Alcoholic contents,........

Nestle isn't liable for you feeding your baby Golden morn below the desired age cos its on the product label,hence NAFDAC cant hold them for that.Infact,it has passed thru NAFDAC approval.Its an extra effort from Nestle to make it legible enough as a way of showing their respect to customer concerns.

Its a National error,we are all in it just the way we unconsciously call all seasoning Maggi,all toothpaste Macleans,.......and we assume to once a baby takes Friso gold/Frisocream from 6months,by one year they can start taking Golden Morn instead of waiting for the child to clock 3.

Permit me to conclude that Golden Morn isn't a poison but the Starch content is hydrolyzed to suit the digestive system of children 3 yrs and above. My Child ate it very well and he is very healthy physically but maybe there was much stress on his digestive organs.

If you take time to read my long comments,I say thank you.

This response from Nestle get as e be. It only add to the comfusion and worry of the people. What do they mean by " precautionary measures". Why the new insertion of precaution in June 2012? What makes the product "suitable" pre June 2012 and "unsuitable" post June 2012. What is the danger to the children who have previously, are presently and will later consume the product?
These are the issues, not some grossly inadequate and irresponsible response. I checked the composition of the product and read nothing strange that can alarm one to the unsuitableness of the product. Nestle should tell us the hidden information not displayed on the product label that compels them to insert this "caveat emptor" years after millions of children under 3 years must have consumed their product.
In the absence of such absolute information and guarantee, NAIRALANDERS SHOULD NOT HESITATE TO INSTITUTE A LIBEL AGAINST NESTLE FOR ENDAGERING LIVES OF MILLIONS OF OUR CHILDREN.
This will serve as deterrent to other companies who play economics with children lives. Nestle may have indeed betray the trust parents have in them to produce healthy foods for our children. How are we sure other products of theirs dont have similar flaws or danger. Boycotting, all their products until they come with more convincing information and public apology in all media they used in advertising the product, may be a good reaction to their act of dangerous irresponsibility.
NAFDAC need to be pressured to act on this issue as well.

I started giving it to my baby dat is a year old n noticed within a short period dat he was diminishing. we took him for medical check up n was told his pcv has reduced drastically. we stopped giving him golden morn n went back to d former feed we were giving him n added some blood building drugs. within a short time also his pcv came back to normal.
Re: Nestlé Responds To Golden Morn Discussion by Kx: 10:51am On Oct 22, 2012
This is an indication that there are so many other foods/drinks that we are consuming without reading the manufacturers caveats.

Nestle even tried, at least the warning is clear enough, but do we read instructions/user manuals at all?

@SEUN/MODs
I observed that when i use the bold icon or font resize icon on a selected text, instead of getting the function executed, the whole text gets duplicated.
I guess that's a bug.

You are right bro.
It is possible that they added some stronger contents that neccesitates the added info on the pack just in June this year.
My 3-year old has been on it since she was one, and we really have had no reason to suspect it as she never had any digestive issues.
NESTLE should do better than the above by providing a clear reason for the recent changes.

Re: Nestlé Responds To Golden Morn Discussion by dimusky: 11:29am On Oct 22, 2012
I am amazed at the levity with which Nestle is treating this Golden Morn Matter, can you imagine just waking up one morning and squeezing in an almost hidden 'warning' on an infant cereal that it is no longer suitable for them. Firstly WHY exactly is it no longer suitable for below 3yr olds? PARENTS DESERVE TO KNOW. Secondly, since the warning was introduced just in June 2012,why Is it difficult to give it PUBLICITY in the TV, radio etc. Children are involved here. As for your half-hearted response on Nairaland, all I can say is that it is a shame.
