Buying organic baby food for your child can be tough. It seems like it should be an easy task, but marketers like to confuse moms with terms like “green” and “natural.” The packaging can also be a concern, because some baby food containers have BPA, which is poisonous. Consider all of these different points when buying baby food to ensure you are really getting high-quality, organic baby food.
What is Natural?
A lot of food producers like to use words like “natural” and “green,” but what does this mean for baby food? In the best case scenario, natural means that no or few pesticides were used on the produce that make up the baby food. However, this isn’t always the case.

- Vitamin A helps repair body tissue and postpones signs of aging, and can be found in milk, cheese, eggs, butter, spinach, broccoli, carrot and fish oils.
- Vitamin B improves circulation and skin colour. It is found in yoghurt, brown bread, wheat germ, yeast, cereal and green leafy vegetables.
- Vitamin C helps to maintain collagen levels and (Read More....)
It seems like almost every day there are news stories which show that it is getting harder and harder to choose an organic lifestyle. Our health freedom is under attack like it never has been before. Now there is this announcement out of Canada (detailed below) which is going to make it much, much more difficult for Canadians to be able to get natural health products and supplements. Those living in the United States should not gloat about this either, because the same type of regulations are slated to be implemented there as well. The truth is that our health and our freedom to make health choices is under attack. Increasingly, government is viewing itself as the all-knowing “Big Brother” that is going to make our choices for us.
