NESTLÉ® MILO® supports the young talents and inspire them to do sports regularly. Staying active and having a healthy lifestyle does not only help a child develop physically but it also helps to keep their minds agile. On top of that, there are many values and priceless experiences your child can gain through sports that cannot be taught in classrooms. NESTLÉ® MILO® with its grassroots sports programmes encourages Mauritian children to go Further.
NESTLÉ® MILO® is proud to be a partner of the Mauritius Sports Council on various acitivities. The NESTLÉ® MILO® Young Athlete of the month rewards young promising talents on a monthly basis. In 2019, around 5000 kids had the chance to participate in the MILO® Champions cup and 2 lucky winners were sent to Barcelona. In 2020, NESTLÉ® MILO® has be an official partner of the Summer Holiday Sports Camp.
Our goal is to encourage more Mauritian kids to part in physical activities so they can lean a variety of skills such as kicking, passing and defending, among valuable life skills like teamwork and communication.
