The Nutrition for the Whole Family campaign aims to nurture families to live fuller lives through good nutrition

Along with this, Nutrition for the Whole Family, a regional initiative across six countries including Vietnam, will be held on Shopee Super Brand Day in May.

The Nutrition for the Whole Family campaign aims to nurture families to live fuller lives through good nutrition, and through this programme, families will receive nutrition tips, engage with a nutritionist, and get to select a range of Abbott’s science-based nutrition products for children and adults.

Today, consumers are prioritising their health by being more mindful of their diets. Nutrition has become a key element in living better and healthier. According to a 2021 Kantar Worldpanel report, Vietnamese consumers seek immunity-boosting and nutrition products, especially for seniors and kids who are at higher risk.

Nearly two-thirds (63 per cent) of consumers in Asia admitted that products and services in the next 5-10 years should be designed in a way that enhances health and wellbeing.

More people are shopping for health-related products such as nutritional supplements online, with the Health category on Shopee growing year-on-year.

As such, we’re happy to work with Abbott, a globally trusted brand, to launch this campaign that educates consumers on nutrition in a fun and interactive way.”
