Health Tip: Teach Your Child to Read Food Labels
Have the child check each snack's nutrition

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Teaching a child to make healthy food choices empowers the child to lead a healthier lifestyle when he or she is grown.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these tips about children and food labels:

  • Before choosing a snack, encourage your child to check its label for calories and fat.
  • Have your child measure what he or she considers an appropriate serving size, then show the actual serving size.
  • Pre-portion your child's snack to the label's serving size.
  • In a supermarket, send your child to find healthy groceries by scanning nutrition labels.
  • Have your child pack his or her own lunch, keeping it under 600 calories.
  • Offer your child praise when the child reads food labels.
