The choice to feed organic to your baby and/or child(ren) is a simple one.
Babies and children are still developing so reducing their exposure to pesticides is incredibly important for keeping them as healthy as possible. They tend to consume more food (for their weight) than adults, they are limited in the range of foods that they eat, therefore their exposure (even small amounts) can be critical to their well being.
“Pesticides may also have detrimental effects on human health, with young children among the particularly vulnerable. Recent research suggests that even low levels of pesticide exposure can affect young children’s neurological and behavioral development. Evidence shows a link between pesticides and neonatal reflexes, psychomotor and mental development, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.”
Research also shows that pesticides are linked to all sorts of health problems, for example cancer, asthma, reduced fertility, allergies, and possibly behavioural and learning disorders and the affects on your baby may not be known until much later on.
