When you allow your intuition to develop, you become the world's foremost authority on your child. The more you practice listening to and caring for your child, the more intuitive you'll become.
But sometimes, even mothers need help when it comes to making the right decisions for their child, especially when it comes to their health. It is normal for moms to seek child care advice and parenting tips from experts as well as from family and friends with parental experience. However, there will be instances when they would end up more confused and less confident to make a decision after hearing varying recommendations or contradicting views.
Last July 28, 2016 Nido® 3+ launched #CheckTheLabel at Todd English Food Hall in SM Aura Premier, it is an educational campaign to encourage mothers to read and have a better understanding of food labels, so they can make smarter and healthier choices for their child. By checking the label, moms can verify nutritional claims, compare brands, and choose which one offers the best value for money.

Here's how to read food labels
when checking food labels, take a look at the ingredients which are listed in the order of highest to lowest quantity. Watch out for health-sensitive ingredients such as sugar, salt, saturated fat, and sodium. When it comes to these, moderation is always key to better prevent the risk of obesity, diabetes, and other lifestyle-related diseases.
Next, review the nutritional facts. It is important to go through each one to determine whether or not a particular food product meets the daily nutritional requirements of children, especially during their crucial growing-up years. Knowing the nutritional content can determine if a child is eating a healthy, balanced diet.
Another good reason to check the label is to identify nutrients that are unique to a brand. Not all food product's like milk are created the same, so choose the one that provides for your child's needs, and more.
