Anchor Uno was launched as a smooth, probiotic yoghurt, free from artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners, for kids. It also naturally contains a range of essential dairy nutrients, including protein, and is a source of calcium to help support growing bones. This year, Anchor Uno Yoghurt has been reformulated to ensure all Anchor Uno yoghurt products were suitable for children to enjoy everyday as part of a healthy diet. This included decreasing the fat content and removing the immunity support bundle, to make it a healthier yoghurt choice for kids, which is also the lowest sugar kids yoghurt on the market.

We support the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommendation the breastfeeding should be exclusive for this first six months of an infant's life, and that infants receive a safe and appropriate complementary foods with continued breastfeeding up to two years of age and beyond. However, we also believe that if mothers are unable to breastfeed, for medical or other reasons, then they should have access to a safe and nutritious alternative.
The WHO recognises that infant formula has a legitimate role to play in such circumstances. It is the only recognised alternative which can allow mothers to provide vital nutrition that supports the rapid mental and physical development that occurs during their children's early years.
The WHO Code for the Marketing of Breast Milk Substitutes (WHO Code) aims to contribute to the provision of safe and adequate nutrition for infants by protecting and promoting breastfeeding ensuring the proper use of breast-milk substitutes if necessary. Fonterra supports the aim and intent of the WHO Code and also complies with any relevant country industry codes and legislation in all countries where our products targeting infants and young children are sold.
