Recently we have seen mounting evidence that food raised organically is richer in nutrients, such as Vitamin C, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus, than those that are not.
Grown with less exposure to nitrates and pesticide residues, organically grown produce and animal products that are sourced from organically grown pastures are better for short- and long-term health of the whole family.
Choosing organic, when possible, will have benefits beyond nutrients, such as antioxidants, then their conventionally grown counterparts. Family members with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives may find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods.
For the littlest family members, organic baby nutrition is especially important for growth and development.
