Organic Food for Little Fingers

All parents are concerned about the health and wellbeing of their family. Children are more vulnerable to exposure to pesticides and herbicides, their bodies absorb toxins more readily than adults do, and their organs are less efficient. Choosing to feed your family organic food reduces your risk of exposure to pesticides, GMOs, antibiotics, and hormones, and promotes the development of long-lasting, good eating habits. Organic dairy products and other organic fruits and vegetables provide more nutrients and vitamins, helping your bones and body stay strong.

Make Eating Organic More Fun!

Children need a lot of nutrients and energy to make it through the school day and afterschool sports.

  • Pack snacks that are fun (and easy!) to eat and will keep them going all day, like dry fruit with oats & milk,dry veg, 1 tea spoon of virgin coconut oil, moringa powder added salads.
  • Buy bulk organic goods to reduce your costs and simplify your meal planning. It's pretty simple to whip up a batch of homemade granola bars from bulk bin goods!
  • Try including a meatless meal in your meal rotation, which will force you to incorporate new foods and perhaps more fruits and vegetables.
  • Avoid artificial sweeteners and dyes in your processed snacks by purchasing organic options. Our "Understanding Organic Labels" flyer is a cheat sheet for deciphering organic claims.

Teach Your Child to Garden Organically

Bring your children into the garden to inspire them and teach them about where their food comes from. Ask your son or daughter to help choose seeds from your organic seed catalog, then help them start and grow the seeds they chose. Together, you can learn about what it means to produce your own food. Plus, many good memories and habits can be formed by learning how food is grown.

The whole family will learn more about how organic food is grown, enjoy the harvest season, and bring the bounty back to your home kitchen. Gardening makes kids more attentive and forces them to be responsible for a living thing, allowing them to actually see and eat the fruits of their labor.
