No artificial coloring or preservatives
No refined sugars and no sodium
No hydrogenated fats and no phosphoric acids
No added supplements,except the FDA-approved iron and vitamin B
No genetically modified grains, fruit, or vegetables
Instead, the general formula for baby foods consists of
Organic cereals (rice, wheat, corn)
Organic legumes (soy bean)
Organic fruits and vegetables
Organic sweetening agents (organic sugar, organic honey)
What’s more, organic baby foods are classified according to age groups, medical conditions (if any), special needs, and special levels of activity. So, whether you’re interested in baby food for your baby, toddler, or young children, going organic is the right choice if you want to foster healthy eating habits and promote optimum physical and physiological development.
The health benefits of organic baby foods for your child are:
Healthier, safer mental and physical development Your baby’s physical systems are still developing.
Babies don’t develop a blood-brain barrier (the barrier between brain tissues and circulating blood that protects the central nervous system) till they are 6 months old. Till they reach this age, their brains are vulnerable to any chemical toxins in the blood – and there are several in non-organic baby food that is made from ingredients which have been treated with chemical agents and pesticides. Organic baby food eliminates this risk.
Your baby’s immunity system is also in the process of developing.
Babies’ systems start producing infection-protecting antibodies only when they are approximately 3 months old, and then at a very slow rate. This means that their immune systems are still not robust enough to withstand or metabolize chemical toxins, so any exposure to pesticide residue presents a high risk. Organic food is the optimal choice to reduce or eliminate this risk.
A healthy intake of essential vitamins and minerals are essential for your baby’s normal physical and mental growth.
Non-organic baby foods not only contain preservatives that impede the proper absorption of certain essential nutrients like calcium and magnesium, they may also contain high amounts of refined sugars and salts that interfere with the absorption of vitamins and minerals. Organic baby food contains none of these ingredients and also provides considerably higher levels of these vitamins and minerals.
Protection against child allergies
Additives in non-organic baby food – artificial coloring to improve appearance and preservatives to prolong shelf life – have been conclusively linked to a seriously negative impact on babies’ health, including hyperactivity, asthma, and retarded growth, along with allergic reactions, all of which can have long-term health consequences. Additives are not permitted in organic baby food, which significantly reduces the risk of allergic reactions in babies, toddlers, and small children.
