In our modern times, all-natural food items are no longer that convenient and practical for most of us. But that doesn’t mean that we should not be careful about the things we consume. Product labels of the different food items we buy are there for a reason. They contain the necessary information about the product, especially what’s in it. For your family’s safety, make it a habit to double-check product labels and see what’s inside. You will be surprised. #PledgeToDoubleCheck
Caring for Our Family’s Well-Being
Like most mommies, our family, especially our kids, are the special treasures we have. We only want what is best for them so we meticulously prepare the food and drinks they consume.
However, we also want them to be happy. With that in mind, are we sure that the refreshments, desserts, and snacks that make them happy are nutritious for your little ones?
Beware of false advertising mommies. Do not put your guard down and don’t be complacent because it’s not enough to buy popular products.
There might be red flags that you don’t see in the usual products we buy. Just because we see our kids are enjoying their usual snacks and drinks doesn’t mean that our job is done. It is still important to give them what they need and what’s good for them.
Double Check Product Labels
As wise moms, we should check what are the ingredients inside the snacks and drinks that we serve our kids.
We should ask these questions: Is there too much sugar? Too many artificial ingredients?
Remember, giving what’s best to our children is not only about providing tasty snacks and beverages. Rather, it is about providing them with food items that will nourish them and keep them healthy.
Are you guilty about this? It’s never too late to break the habit of buying whatever is pleasing to the eyes and what is popular.
Let’s make it a good habit to double check the labels of the things we buy. It may take some time, but in the end, it will be worth it for the sake of our children’s health.
Mommy Movement by All Natural Seasons Juice by Dole
Mommies, make it a habit to check the label.
This is the message of All Natural Seasons Juice by Dole as they started the mommy movement, #PledgeToDoubleCheck. They are advocating for smarter and wiser grocery shopping so they are calling us to be more conscious about our grocery shopping habits.
With this, Dole encourages us to properly educate ourselves about the ingredients of the products we are buying. Let’s go by this rule in products from the grocery: The lesser ingredients they contain, the more natural they probably are. Hence, it is a healthier and safer product for the family.
We may think that the current products that we are purchasing are already “healthy”.
But upon checking their list of ingredients, you might be shocked to find that they contain chemically-sounding artificial additives and preservatives.
These are supposed to add a more flavorful taste to the product plus increase the shelf life.
Mommies, if there are too many ingredients (more than 10) that are hard to understand, the product might contain a lot of artificial ingredients. These are not advisable to be consumed in large amounts regularly so you might want to reconsider giving them to your children.
Through pledging to check the label, you are committing to being more aware of the different brands to trust. We should assess their claims of being a healthy product.
You will be shocked to discover that the products you have patronized and have made staple food items contain ingredients that can lead to health problems.
In closing, let’s just remember this. We don’t want strangers coming into our house because we would feel that our privacy has been violated. In the same way, we should not let products that we don’t know go inside our systems. We should make it a habit to double-check product labels in order to stay on the safe side.
