Organic Baby Food
Many parents see organic baby food in health food
stores or regular grocery aisles and simply pass it by. You probably
think “I grew up on regular baby food and I’m fine”. Think about it
this way, do you lock up your cleaning supplies and gardening chemicals, or is your
baby allowed to eat and drink from them? Okay perhaps it’s not an
equal comparison, after all there are only small amounts of toxic
chemicals from pesticides and fertilizers in traditional baby food
but do you really want to take the risk? Natural moms say NO.
You may notice that the price tags on organic baby
food are a little bit higher than on regular baby food. There are
some ways to reduce the cost without risking the health of your
child. Certain traditionally grown foods are still very low in
pesticide levels and are safe for your baby. These include bananas,
broccoli, mangos, papaya, pineapple, and sweet peas. You should
switch to organic for high pesticide level foods such as apples,
strawberries, peaches, pears, and spinach. Another way to cut back
costs is to make your own baby food. That way, you can buy or grow
organic vegetables and be sure of what exactly is going into your
baby’s food. Do a search for homemade organic baby food online and
you’ll find thousands of great recipes your child is bound to love.
Also, think about buying more expensive organic food as an
investment in your child's health. No matter what the cost isn't
that a wise investment?
