Today, everyone is more aware of the dangers of choosing impure and contaminated foods, and when it comes to your baby, you would like to choose the best and purest form of food ever available.
You may have heard of â€˜organic foodsâ€™, and you may have wondered what it is, and if organic food is good for your baby.
Here are some pointers on organic foods for your baby, and all the advantages of choosing an organic diet for your precious bundle of joy, especially in the first few months of his life.
- First and foremost, organic foods are healthy and more hygienic than other foods, and this is because these foods contain higher levels of vitamin C and calcium, as well as other ingredients like cancer fighting antioxidants. As a matter of fact, research has shown that organic foods contain almost double the amount of nutrients that normally grown or reared foods do, and using organic foods can become single largest contributor to good health in the long term for your baby. Using only organic foods will stand your baby in good stead as he grows up.
- There are absolutely no additives in organic foods. Perhaps you are aware that additives are today the single largest contributors to heart disease, osteoporosis and hyperactivity.
- Since there are no additives, there are no added antibiotics as well. You may be aware of the high level of antibiotic usage on farm animals, antibiotics that we are forced to assimilate upon consumption of these animals. Imagine the harm it could cause on your babyâ€™s delicate system!
- All organic food growers adhere to very high standards of manufacture by law. This will ensure that your baby gets only the very best of foods available in the market today.
