Nestlé Nigeria has innovated once more by introducing MILO energy food drink in a ready to drink format to meet the nutrition needs of active children in a convenient packaging.
Milo is made from natural products like cocoa, malt, and milk and contains no preservatives. It provides essential nutrients such as proteins as well as Nestlé’s blend of vitamins, ACTIV-GO (vitamins B3, B2, B6, B12, vitamin C, and vitamin D) and minerals including calcium and Iron. A pack of 180 ml MILO® RTD gives children nutritious energy that keeps them performing at their best throughout the day.
According to Mr. Mauricio Alarcon, Managing Director and CEO of Nestlé Nigeria, MILO Ready to Drink combines the great MILO taste and high nutritional value into a format that meets the needs of parents who want to ensure that their children are getting the right nourishment daily.
“Milo in the ready to drink format, is now readily available to families across Nigeria,” he said.
Now parents can include Milo RTD in children’s lunch boxes and be reassured that their children have the appropriate, healthy snack time option when out of their homes. The new RTD format is inspired by Nestlé’s desire to help meet the needs of growing children whilst adhering to Nestlé’s high-quality standards.

Nestlé Milo® has built a rich heritage in Nigeria as the food drink of champions, inspiring early participation in grassroot sports by encouraging sports development for over 19 years. In 2017 alone, 100,000 students from the 36 states of the federation participated in the Milo Basketball Championships.
