Navigating The New Normal Online? Here Are Simple Ways Mom Can Break Through The Clutter
  • As families continue staying safe at home during this global health crisis, moms see how important it is to stay informed and updated. You want your kids to stay healthy, which means learning everything you can about the best ways to care for them. This is especially true when it comes to their nutrition, with many moms having a difficult time responding properly to picky eaters during the pandemic. 

    Going online for tips, however, can be overwhelming. There is a lot of information out there that makes it difficult at times to find out who or what to believe.

    You want to make the right call. So, to cut out the noise, here are a few ways moms to safe and informed online.

    1. Secure your personal info 

    Managing the privacy of our data is becoming more critical than ever, and moms should examine when and how their personal information is being used, shared, and even exploited by websites, social media networks, apps, and the like.

    Read the terms and conditions of the use of these digital sites and networks. Check out options and services that keep your internet connections secure, such as virtual private networks (VPN).

    A 2019 study found, 84% of moms and dads have not discussed how to be safe online with their kids. Teaching them to detect predatory behavior and setting ground rules for privacy on social media, for example, go a long way to keep kids safe.

    2. Keep updated with the news

    It is important to know what is happening in the world, especially within the country, through credible and well-established news sources. This is how you can make informed decisions for your household and for your children.

    With kids at risk of COVID-19, you’ll need to keep track of the latest developments in research for prevention and vaccination for their health and well-being. For example, what foods and habits will help boost their immunity? And if your child is a picky eater, how do you help them get the nutrients they need? It's important to stay up to date.

    3. Make sure your sources are credible

    With so much information now available online, it isn’t surprising that many of it can be questionable. The World Health Organization says COVID-19 came with an “infodemic” -- an overabundance of credible and dubious information. This makes it more critical than ever to learn how to spot fake news and find sources that you can trust.

    That said, information about health should come from certified medical professionals and leading health organizations. The NANKID® Parentology Forum, for example, is a site where you can get helpful information related to children's nutrition and parenting.
