New Habit: Reading labels

Reading labels is something you are probably not in the habit of doing (yet). Starting and maintaining a new habit is tough. Here are some tricks from other parents:

  1. Use color dot stickers to signal you or another adult has checked the label
  2. Leave yourself sticky notes in the fridge and in cupboards
  3. Check the label 3 times:  at the store, when you unpack it at home and before you serve it
  4. Keep a journal of safe foods

It takes 66 days to form a new habit. So keep those reminders out in the open and don’t get discouraged! You’ve got this.
