Nestle is flying baby formula to the United States to help alleviate the formula shortage and fight hunger.
The formula shortage has been impacting parents for months, causing many to be concerned over feeding their babies.
In an effort to help, Nestle has committed to flying some formulas to the United States to help stock grocery store shelves.
The formula they’re importing, Gerber Good Start Extensive HA and Alfamino, will hopefully help alleviate the shortage.
According to Reuters, the company made the announcement on Tuesday that they’d be taking formula from the Netherlands and from Switzerland and transferring it to the United States.
In a letter allegedly shared with Reuters, they explained:
“We prioritized these products because they serve a critical medical purpose as they are for babies with cow’s milk protein allergies. Both products were already being imported but we moved shipments up and rushed via air to help fill immediate needs.”
Some parents have been stocking up on formula whenever they can in fear that baby formula shelves will be empty indefinitely, while others have been doing everything they can to avoid formula and allow those who need it to get first dibs.
It’s a terrible feeling to wonder if your baby will have enough food or not, and hopefully this effort from Nestle will make an impact on areas most affected by the shortage.Whizzco
