Organic Foods


Many families feel that the benefits of going organic aren't enough justification for the high cost they must pay for those foods. But if you want to be sure that your baby's food is free of pesticides and other chemicals, and that it comes from an environmentally sustainable source, then organic foods may be for you. A study performed by Consumer Reports found that organic food really is safer for children than conventional products. The good news is that parents have plenty of organic food options these days. Look for containers that are clearly marked as 100% organic.
