NIDO 3+ launches #CheckTheLabel, 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 containing the label, moms can verify nutritional claims, compare brands, and select which one offers the best value for money.
NIDO 3+ #CheckMoMuna #CheckTheLabel Campaign
Though they say that “mother knows best”, sometimes even mothers need help. When it comes to making the right decisions for our children, especially when it comes to their health, it is normal for moms like me to seek child care advice and parenting tips from experts as well as from family and friends with parental experience. That’s what I did when I was a newbie mother, because becoming a mother doesn’t come with a manual, right? Nevertheless, there will be instances when mommies like me would end up more confused and less confident making a conclusion after hearing varying recommendations or contradicting views.
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 the key to better prevent the risk of obesity, diabetes, and other lifestyle-associated diseases.
Next, review the nutrition facts. It is important to move through each one to find out whether or not a special food product meets the daily nutritional requirements of small 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 products like milk are created the same, so select the one that provides for your child’s needs, and to a greater extent.

Sarah Lahbati checks the label
Lending her voice and support to the campaign is proud NIDO 3+ mommy, Sarah Lahbati. Having had the same challenge when it was time for her to choose a growing-up milk for Zion when he turned three, the first-time mom learned that the best path for her to earn a decision was to manage the research herself and check the labels on her choices. And by precisely checking the label, Sarah Lahbati is assured that she made the right choice with NIDO® 3+.
