Choosing the right foods for our babies is a critical aspect of parenthood, yet it's fraught with confusion and marketing tactics, especially when we walk down the aisles of local supermarkets or grocery shopping apps.
Food labels often read like a cryptic code, leaving parents bewildered by the choices before them. We certainly can't ignore the overly influential power of marketing campaigns that companies use to coax Indian consumers into buying pricier items (example, digestive biscuits), which we presume to be healthier than their cheaper counterparts.
However, when you strip away all the glamor of advertising and packaging design, there’s a disconcerting truth. Most of these healthy foods that claim to be whole wheat, multigrain, or high fiber do in fact contain maida or refined wheat flour. That’s why it’s essential to know how to read food labels and be aware about what to look for, to ensure the health and well-being of our little ones!
