#54: Organic Food for Babies – What You Need to Know and What It Says About You as a Parent

Episode art for episode: “#54 ORGANIC FOOD for Babies - What You NEED to Know and WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT YOU as a Parent”. Pictured is a supermarket with an organic produce sign above tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, and other vegetables.

In this episode, I’m giving you all the information you need in order to decide if you should buy organic food for your family. Maybe you’ve noticed that a lot of baby food packages tout the organic label in the baby food aisle, but is organic really better?

We’ll chat about the differences between organic and non-organic foods, and get into the pros and cons. I’ll also share some tips to find balance between organic and non-organic, like buying fresh organic fruits and veggies when they’re in season and more reasonably priced. And, when they’re out of season, substituting them with something else to help with the costs. Additionally, we’ll talk about pesticide residues, and I’ll give you the lowdown on which fruits and veggies are likely to have the highest levels.

As always if you get any value from this episode please leave me a rating and review on Apple Podcasts! Without these it’s really hard for me to reach more parents like yourself, and I really want to help as many parents as I can – so please leave your thoughts, share about it, and subscribe.
