The US Food and Drug Administration has accused food giant Nestlé of making unauthorised claims about its Juicy Juice products, which were promoted as boosting brain development in young children. Nestlé’s Kid Essentials Nutritionally Complete Drink has also come under fire for not meeting the requirements of the product’s widely promoted “medical food” claim.
The US Government has released a report on assistance to highly vulnerable children in developing countries. Such children include those who are refugees, internally displaced, homeless, and associated with armed groups. The report outlines priorities in 2010 and beyond, including increasing support for extremely poor households to keep families intact and improve their ability to care for their children.
