About The Parenting Index
How can we make a difference?

The Parenting Index provides a unique perspective on the challenges faced by parents today. The Index can provide insight into how governments, employers, communities, families, friends and partners might offer improved support for parents in today’s changing and unpredictable world.

About The Parenting Index

The Parenting Index provides a new framework for understanding the experience of parenting today through comparable and quantifiable data, and it acts as a benchmark to track these changes over time.  

The inaugural Index, published in 2021, was commissioned by Nestlé, with research conducted by Kantar, as part of its ongoing commitment to support families in the first 1,000 days of life.
