Day 152 - Organic Baby Food vs. Regular Baby Food

Today's tip - Regular baby food is just as good as organic baby food

Lately organic baby food seems to be all the rage, but at nearly twice the price, is it worth it?

The answer seems to be no, according to this and several other articles. Turns out that unless your baby has allergies or an aversion to the taste of regular baby food, they're receiving the same safe nutrition as organic.

Most baby food farms aren't sprayed with the same harmful chemicals as the produce you eat, so harmful pesticides and herbicides aren't an issue. And the nutrients in the regular baby foods are controlled and optimized...something that doesn't happen in nature. I'll leave it up to you to assess whether or not that's better. Personally, I don't think you can go wrong with either.

And I tried some organic food - it seemed to taste and have a little bit better texture than the regular stuff. So if you want to give your baby a tasty feast, organic would be a good way to go. But if you're wondering if the extra scratch is worth it for organic baby's not.
