Annabel seems somewhat taken in by Nestle:
“We have had a few enquiries about my association with Nestle whole grain cereals campaign. Amazingly 90% of Brits don’t eat enough whole grains, so we had great fun devising recipes using Nestle whole grains such as buzzy bees and salmon fishcakes. We know that all mums are pressed for time so not only are my recipes fun but are really quick and easy to make.
We were only involved with the whole grain cereals campaign, however there were a few concerns about the association Nestle parent brand itself and the marketing of infant formula. We are happy to work with Nestle the company and my decision was based on the evidence as it stands today.
I agree with and firmly support Nestle’s belief breast feeding is the best way to feed a baby. However, not all mothers can breast feed and the only suitable substitute to breast milk approved by the World Health Organisation is infant formula. It is evident that Nestle complies with the WHO International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk substitutes (1981) and is very sensitive to the challenges that confront mothers in developing countries.

Where is that evidence Annabel? Baby Milk Action says that “Nestlé is targeted with the boycott because monitoring conducted by the International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN) finds it to be responsible for more violations of the World Health Assembly marketing requirements for baby foods than any other company” http://www.babymilkaction.org/pages/boycott.html
Now who will I believe? Annabel who is sponsored by Nestle, or Baby Milk Action who are not?
