Organic homemade baby food – I’m sure you have seen organic food being sold at supermarkets everywhere. But what is organic food and what do people mean when they say that they are going organic or that their families are organic?
Organic food simply means food that is produced without the use of chemicals. For example, if you grow tomatoes, apples and other fruits with the aid of pesticides and other chemicals, then your fresh produce is not organic. Cattle and poultry or other livestock that are reared with the use of hormones, antibiotics and other chemicals for maximum growth are not organic.
Why Feed Your Baby Organic Baby Food?
Feeding your baby with organically grown produce is good. You will be protecting your little one from all the chemical residues that you can find on some fruits and vegetables. You will also be saving your baby from all the hormones and antibiotics.
The organic homemade baby food contains loads of nutrients too. So not only will your baby be eating foods that taste greater, but he will also be getting good-quality nutritious food. Try tasting an organically grown tomato and just take in that lovely smell and the unbeatable taste!
Now, we all know how costly organic food can be, to save money; knowing which foods contain high levels of pesticide residue and then replacing them with organically grown ones can be a useful tool.
Buy organically grown apples instead of the conventionally grown ones.
