Growing up eating the freshest organic foods harvested from our garden, I am a strong believer of the wonders organic foods provides not only to our health but to the planet, Thousands of miles away from my parents farm I still feed my family nothing but organic, the largest part of our budget goes to food knowing our health depends solely on it.
That said I also know the importance of eating fresh food, buying organic food that has been processed to death is just as bad as eating overly processed conventional food, they both have very little or no nutrients left. Strive to eat the freshest foods humanly possible; in my house we eat strictly organic because personally it is the only way I know how to eat but I will never pick lifeless organic food over fresh conventional.
Here is a great article by Leah Zerbe on the many benefits of eating FRESH ORGANIC.. Again the key is FRESH..
The nutritional reasons for eating organic are rock solid, according to research. Add the environmental, economic, and wellness reasons, and it’s a no-brainer.
Maybe you heard the hullabaloo over a 2010 journal review written by a well-known researcher who has spent a lot of time discrediting the nutritional benefits of organic food. In the article, Joseph Rosen, PhD, professor emeritus of food toxicology at Rutgers University, suggested that organic food might not be worth the cost. This “new” review didn’t include any new content, or address dozens of recent studies that prove the nutritional value of organic food. Nevertheless, nutritional considerations certainly influence the food choices we make, so it’s a worthy conversation to have.
That said, eating organic involves a lot more than the nutritional content of the food itself. In 2010, the mainstream medical community—in the form of the President’s Cancer Panel—took the major step of urging Americans to eat organic food because of its many benefits, including the fact that it’s grown without chemicals, pesticides, drugs, and hormones linked to cancer, as chemically grown foods are.

We are learning each and everyday about just for important our food is to our health..

Best & Worst first foods for baby.. I would add to the worst list, overly processed foods with a 1+ year shelf life that have literally been cooked to death killing both the good and the bad..
Myths about fresh organic are a testimony to the power of advertising, marketing and lobbying. The big corporations have systematically manufactured doubt about the science behind organics especially freshly made and fostered the myth that there really is no difference between organic and conventional, fresh vs 2 year old that food and the list goes on and on, but the truth is ‘we are what we eat’ and that is true for our babies as well..
Wanting to try some new veggies like bok choy, asparagus etc for the baby but no clue on how to cook it? Here is a handy veggie cheat sheet with recommendations on how to cook 20 different varieties.. *Share* with those you love.
If you are not compulsively reading your food labels you should consider making it a priority.. Labels are an important way for producers like us to tell you about the characteristics of our products. Don’t let yourself be fooled by large words printed on labels that lead you to believe it’s a healthy choice. Sugar if any should NEVER be the 1st or 2nd ingredient on any food/drink you are feeding your kids.. If you look at your labels closely you will be able to catch little marketing tricks, take for example Organic Wild Blueberry jelly, here is what is disclosed on the label, which is the true attribute organic sugar, organic apple, organic blueberry, citric acid, fruit pectin etc. If you did not read the label you have just paid premium blueberry price for sugar apple jelly..
Take time to learn what you are feeding your kids by reading your food labels (even those in fine print). When it comes to helping our little ones grow healthy and happy, it’s worth taking the time to do it right. After all… we only get one chance to get it right.
We love using fresh organic tomatoes in our toddler meals because it makes it extra yummy and it is also full of many health benefits.

It’s sad that we live in a period in which the food industry has figured out millions of ways to put x amount of artificial ingredients into something that is supposed to be “healthy” to make it look more appetizing and last longer. Two prime examples are sugar-filled breakfast box cereals and 2-year-old cooked baby food. The chemicals and methods used to generate these synthetic foods are not good for our kids or for us, and studies have shown that they can even be detrimental to our health at times.
We all know by now that feeding our kids a ton of overly processed food may lead to obesity and a bunch of other health concerns. When we talk about processed foods, it’s not just about all the wonderful nutrients that are lost during processing (like vitamins, the minerals, and fiber); we also have to be concerned about all the added “junk” gained during the production process – like salt, sugar, chemical additives, fillers and more. All these unnecessary supplements pose a major threat to our growing babies.
