Parents turn to organic food

Parents turn to organic food – Nov 8, 2005:
Organic baby food sales jump 18 percent in a year

WASHINGTON (AP) — Erin O’Neal has two daughters and a fridge stocked with organic cheese, milk, fruits and vegetables in her Annapolis, Maryland, home.


See my sister thinks I’m nuts but really I’m normal. I don’t mean to sound obnoxious but I really do think it’s kind of a no brain-er to feed your kids organic, if you can. It’s just common sense that if chemicals go in the ground around the plant and are sprayed onto the plant that they will be in the fruit. I do recognize that organic food is expensive but as the article says if you can’t afford organic foods than you can shop a little smarter and choose foods that have lower pesticide levels like bananas, avocados (sorry Julie) and avoid conventional fruits and veggies with high levels like grapes, raisins and spinach. The EWG has a handy dandy printable wallet guide to the high/low pesticide level foods.

We are exposed to enough junk through the air and water that we don’t need extra hormones and antibiotics from milk and meat and pesticides from fruits and veggies.

  1. Thanks for posting the link to that guide. There is no way that we can possibly afford to buy everything organic, but I am with you on the concern… It will be very helpful to know which choices are likely to be the lesser offenders. 🙂

  2. i wish we could afford to buy all organic, but it’s just too expensive. thanks for the guide. i will check it out.

    and thx for the comment on my blog. 🙂

  3. Jen I do think you are nuts

    but not because of the organic food thing 🙂

    maybe it is multicolored hair you had in high school, or because you are an art type, maybe because you wear two non matching socks constantly…but not because of the food thing 🙂
