Building, sharing and applying nutrition knowledge
Nestlé Nutrition Institute
The Nestlé Nutrition Institute (NNI) is a not-for-profit association that shares leading science-based information and education with healthcare professionals, scientists, nutrition communities and stakeholders in all parts of the world through various forms of interaction.
It is one of the world’s largest private publishers of nutritional information. As well as acquiring information on a broad range of nutrition related topics, it also shares information through scientific workshops and symposia.

We believe it’s critical to share our latest research with healthcare professionals and keep them updated on nutritional advances. NNI Sri Lanka works with several renowned international universities and medical schools to help create and disseminate pediatric nutrition-specific programmes to help healthcare professionals in Sri Lanka keep their pediatric nutritional knowledge up to date. Their Continuous Medical Education (CME) programmes include :
- Post Graduate Program in Pediatric Nutrition (PGPN), Boston University School of Medicine, USA.
- International Program on Preterm Nutrition (IPPN), University of Western Australia.
- Early Nutrition Specialist (ENS) program, Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich.
Through the programme, we have educated over 800 healthcare professionals in Sri Lanka over the past six years.
