    Nestle has a history of giving formula to women in Third world countries and encouraging them to formula feed over breastfeeding. Many of these women then lose their milk, can't afford the formula (especially well-balanced formula) and their babies die or have severe nutritional deficiencies.

    Yeah.. it's just standing up to a VERY unethical company, who have their dirty little fingers in so many brands and products! It's a boycott that has pretty much been going on since the 80's isn't it? Unfortunately the boycott doesn't seem to affect them much... but I prefer to not pump money into their pockets.

    There are 2 products that I continue to buy, but otherwise I do my best to avoid Nestle. And it's amazing just how much has their stamp on it! It pretty much leaves you with 1 or 2 choices of icecream, yoghurt etc.

    What Kysalyss said. They give free formula to women who don't need it in order to create a market. Because women in developing nations might not have access to clean water and the means to sterilise equipment formula can cause diseases which are often fatal.
    Some women try to save money by feeding formula at half strength this leads to nutritional deficiencies/starvation.

    For icecream try the Weis brand. OMG!! It's icecream heaven. No nasty additives and it comes from QLD. It costs a bit more but IMO it's better to pay extra for quality.

    Ahhh, thank you for explaining that girls! I thought it was an uproar cause it was all going american or something. WOw.. well from looking at the list there really isn't anything that i buy from them. With maybe the exception of Milo for Ava as a treat...And Maggi Macaroni... What can I substitute Milo with? that is the same without the sugar etc

    Oh NO! Allens???? Dammit.

    KL, have a look on FB, a few of the girls have posted a (very sad) pic of the examples of an FF baby in a 3rd world country.

    We buy ovaltine. You could also try Acktive (sp) or sustagen.
    Nearly all the ski schools in Australia are sponsored by Milo. My boys came back last week demanding hot milo *sigh*. It was such effective marketing I nearly wanted to cry.

    ETA - lulu try The Natural Confectionary Company. I promise you that once you try their yummy lollies that you will stop buying the other brands. We are so hooked on their dinosaurs.

    ETA 2 - KL you can find the picture Lulu is talking about in the following link but please be aware that it is a very harrowing picture and story. Please don't click it if you are feeling fragile http://granolachicks.xanga.com/546193756/item/

    ETA - Ovaltine is mmmmkay. I'll have to find something else

    Such a shame about Smarties as they finally updated the colourings to be more friendly.

    I second Natural Confectionary, you just can't go back after you've had them, makes eating Allens feel like your chewing on a ball of rubber!

    I grew up on Milo, but switched to Ovaltine and it's yum. Or if I'm feeling really fiendish, I'll melt some Lindt chocolate with milk....mmmmmm.

    Just check the ethical guide and Ovaltine is on the best to avoid list. This is not easy!

    I think Uncle Toby's have recently been bought by Nestle. Also check Country Cup (the soups).
