Making Healthy Choices - Mother and Daughter

As a parent, you're the one buying groceries, preparing meals, and handing out snacks. A child also learns from watching his parents. If you eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, it's more likely your child will too!

Reading Nutrition Labels

Can kids run before they walk? No, and it's the same with eating nutritious foods. The first step to healthy eating is knowing what's in the food you buy.

Nutrition labels provide information about nutrient content, such as the amounts of fat, sodium, and fiber in that food or beverage product. Use the nutrition label to see if it's a healthy choice for your family.

All packaged foods have “Nutrition Facts.” But what do they mean? Understanding these labels can help you make healthier choices for your children.
