In this episode of Healthy Family Project, we talk to our official registered dietitian, Sally Kuzemchak, about the new nutrition facts panel and what changes to be aware of. The new label was designed to reflect more current knowledge about nutrition. Sally breaks down changes to serving sizes, added sugars, and daily values to help shoppers make more informed decisions when picking up new items.
Some people say that food labels don’t matter as long as you’re choosing healthy foods. But I disagree–food labels reveal a lot. That “healthy” chia muffin might contain a day’s worth of added sugar, and that hearty-looking “cracked wheat” bread could have zero fiber. You won’t know unless you look at the label.
In this episode of the Healthy Family Project, we talk to Theresa Desuyo, mom of three and Digital Family Expert at Qustodio, the leader in digital safety and wellbeing for kids and families. Theresa shares ways that parents can help their kids navigate the internet, keep them safe from harmful content, manage screen time, and how Qustodio can help.
