Because pesticides on crops and growth hormones in livestock has been used freely now it’s proven to hurt babies’ health because of this organic baby food sales have increased 10 fold. Small bodies do not have the immune system strength and brain development yet and this can be affected by diet. When pesticide residue on fruits & vegetables or growth hormones from milk are introduced, the little developing systems of babies may compromise.

The Federal pesticide Standards are Cold Comfort

The late 1990’s brought a growth to the organic industry as well as new federal regulations about the use of pesticides and even the banning of others. This is cold comfort to parents who have already raised their babies on regular jarred or prepared baby foods. Many companies have complied with federal standards but admit there are still low levels of metals and pesticides in their baby foods. There is no foolproof way to eradicate the presence of these toxins unless you go totally organic with organic baby food.

Healthy Baby Gains

Babies raised on organic food often realize a healthier immune system and their all around development generally benefits as well. Unfortunately exposure to toxins in food often causes allergies, mental problems and behavioral issues and more. In fact, pregnant mothers are strongly encouraged to adopt organic diets to stop these toxins getting to their unborn child through the blood stream.
