Nestlé Health Science / Homenagem Dia da Nutricionista - "Malu" (2019) :90 (Brazil)

You might not think such a colourful animation would be so touching, but it is. Nestlé created the ad to celebrate nutritionists. What you feed your body helps your body build itself, heal itself and perform better. In this animated short the idea is to convey how nutrition can bring people together. 

The animated video titled “Malu,” produced by Zombie Studios and directed by Paulo Garcia, upliftingly shows the connections between two people who find themselves in different phases of their lives. The first is Malu, a child at school who receives nutritional care that is a true form of affection. The school chef helps the child see food and mealtimes in a different way.  The second portion of the film focuses on Malu as an adult, now working as a nutritionist, and recognizing who made a difference in her life. She seeks to give back by also providing care and affection. The connection between the two is established through nutrition.


"Nutritionists play an essential role in patients' recovery. We sought to make a tribute that would recognize this amazing value, through the emotional link that nutritionists create with people," explained Juliana Bortali, from Nestlé Health Science. "The script is very poetic, a kind of Proustian exploration of our emotional memory of food," added Mauro Arruda, ECD and Co-Managing Director of FCB Health Brasil.


Nestlé Health Science chose FCB Health Brasil as the agency for an annual communications project for its Medical Nutrition division. The project is focused on enteral alimentation, a treatment for people who are unable to completely feed themselves through the mouth.


This is the first time that Nestlé Health's hospital and non-hospital channels are undertaking strategically distinct approaches, unified under the concept "Nutrition Connects Us."
