With so many milk options available in the market today, it is best that mothers check what the nutrition labels say. The carbohydrates on nutrition facts labels can be downright confusing plus ingredients and nutritional facts on the product packaging can be misleading. More than being attracted to what is popular, mother should make sure that claims aren’t just marketing hype when shopping for milk.
Another good reason to check food labels is to identify nutrients that are unique to a brand. Not all food products like milk are created equal, so choosing one that meets your child’s needs is one of the best ways to properly nourish them. Our choice of milk has a major impact on the health of our kids. By checking the nutritional labels, moms also get to check if it meets the daily nutritional requirements of children, especially during their crucial growing-up years.

Brand ambassadress Sarah Lahbati loves NIDO for being honest – to provide a well-balanced diet to help meet the nutritional needs of toddlers, with essential vitamins and minerals which support a child’s healthy growth, development and immune system.
Lahbati began checking the labels when she was pregnant. However, she believes it should start as early as possible – pregnant or not. “When I was pregnant, I became more aware because I wanted to give my baby (Zion) the other nutrients he needed while he was still inside me,” she said.
Lahbati said she always checks everything, especially to check what is in the food. Now that she is a mom, she ensures that what Zion get is healthy and good,
“There is so much information going around, so much advice from your mom, mother-in-law, sister and auntie… and it’s always like that especially when you are a first time mom,” Sarah related.
