My two young grandchildren in tow noticed I was standing still in the aisles reading boxes and containers – instead of zipping as fast I could through the store. When they asked me what I was doing, I explained their Papa had too much salt in his diet, and we needed to help him eat healthier. To my delight they snapped into action and followed suit reading every label on the items selected. With a few quick instructions they became expert sodium hunters, and label readers.
My husband’s blood pressure was soon under control. But, even though most of the items had become routine on the shopping list, the grandchildren still read the labels when we went to the store.
Kids are never too young to learn.
