To ensure proper rendering and touch zooming for all devices, add the responsive viewport meta tag to your <head>.

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">

Step 2: Includes bootstrap library

First of all, load the Bootstrap framework CSS into the head tag of your webpage.

label {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: row;
  justify-content: flex-end;
  text-align: right;
  width: 400px;
  line-height: 26px;
  margin-bottom: 10px;
}

input {
  height: 20px;
  flex: 0 0 200px;
  margin-left: 10px;
}

After that, create the space between the checkbox and text with a class name .label input.

    <div class="preference">
        <label for="cheese">Do you like cheese?</label>
        <input type="checkbox" name="cheese" id="cheese">
    </div>

    <div class="preference">
        <label for="peas">Do you like peas?</label>
        <input type="checkbox" name="peas" id="peas">
    </div>

Example.

Let’s look at the following example to understand how it basically works:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">

<head>
    <!-- Required meta tags -->
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">

    <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css"
        integrity="sha384-zCbKRCUGaJDkqS1kPbPd7TveP5iyJE0EjAuZQTgFLD2ylzuqKfdKlfG/eSrtxUkn" crossorigin="anonymous">
    <style>

label {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: row;
  justify-content: flex-end;
  text-align: right;
  width: 400px;
  line-height: 26px;
  margin-bottom: 10px;
}

input {
  height: 20px;
  flex: 0 0 200px;
  margin-left: 10px;
}
    </style>
    <title>Bootstrap</title>
</head>

<body>

    <div class="preference">
        <label for="cheese">Do you like cheese?</label>
        <input type="checkbox" name="cheese" id="cheese">
    </div>

    <div class="preference">
        <label for="peas">Do you like peas?</label>
        <input type="checkbox" name="peas" id="peas">
    </div>
