The new normal. How many of you have already adjusted to this thing we called the new normal? What are the things you have changed so far? I know there are many changes that is happening around us, some things that we never imagined will happen, but is already happening. As parents, as moms, the responsibility to adjust for the family is relied heavily on us. And it can be really overwhelming and can be stressful, but we will be dealing with it none the less. Tayo pa ba? Ang mga nanay walang sinusukuan yan.
Talking about dealing with it, I guess one of our biggest concerns is the health of our family. I am telling you, your concern is valid and you are not alone. Each every mom have been looking for ways to make their family healthier and with better immunity. It is in our nature to find ways, to ask around what else can we do to make our family health. Kumbaga mas naging health conscious na tayo ngayon.
Kayo ba, what are the changes that you’re doing to ensure that your family is healthy? Alam nyo kame, we have been exercising more, doing more physical activities than ever. We’re alaso trying to take advantage of the health benefits of morning sun exposure. The kids are also more involve with household chores. That’s hitting two birds in one stone! Mas nagiging responsable na sila, may physical activity pa.
Of course we also change a few in our diet. More fruits and veggies please! We really have to wise with our spending di ba? We have to spend our hard earned money wisely and in a more practical way. Lagi ko nga sinasabi sa mga bata, kesa ibili mo ng pagkain that may or will cause you more harm that good, just buy something natural and nutritious.
And that is how we are coping so far! Our buying attitude now lean towards providing the best, and the most nutritious for our family. We understand the importance of fruit in our diet and we buy these to keep our kids healthy. And because we are more conscious with what we buy, we highly rely on the nutritional facts and ingredients list that are indicated on the back label. Pero alam nyo ba some food manufacturers use misleading tricks to convince people to buy highly processed and unhealthy products. Ano daw? Kahit ako nagulat din ng nalaman ko. When it comes to our fruit juices, I also check the ingredients to make sure that it has the freshest ingredients, always check the back label!
I learned that lesson sometime ago. Like most of you, I really believe that aside from water, the next best drink is fruit juices. So for my school kids, I always buy fruit juices in tetra pack in boxes! I have this thinking that what I a giving them as baon for school was healthy. Mali pala when I started reading the label. I’m just actually giving them sugar in a tetrapack. So imagine my surprise eh may 5 box pa ng fruit juice sa pantry.
This is why I am sharing this to you, para hindi na kayo magkamali. Here’s my guiding principle when checking the ingredients of products that claim to be healthy and natural:
- Check the first 5 ingredients. Usually the first 5 ingredients make up the largest part of the food component.
- If an ingredients list is longer than two to three lines suggests that the product is highly processed. Pag mahaba, magduda ka na.
- If an ingredient is hard to pronounce, it might not be good for you
Alam mo mabilis lang naman mag check ng label and investigate. If the product claims to be natural and healthy, double check the back label before buying it. Are you ready to check the back label?
