Congratulations To Our First Huggies® MumInspired® Grant Program Recipients!
Nobody does a better job figuring out what parents need than those who are with their little one daily. And many of our favorite products have been inspired by just that: real-life, day-to-day parenting experiences. That's why we at Huggies are helping Mums like you take ideas from your memorable parenting Muments and make them a reality with our Huggies® MumInspired® Grant Program.
Inspired by a need and acting on it — our first entrepreneurial grant award recipients designed amazingly unique products that nurture the relationship between parent and child. We asked these creative Mums to tell us what inspired their innovation and what the future has in store for their ideas. Now you can dive into the fascinating world of entrepreneurship and see how Mums like you are striving to make parenting easier around the world.
