Today I went to Ralphs to get my 6 months old baby food. I was standing in the middle of baby food aisle for awhile trying to figure whether I should get my baby's food in organic or not.
I was asking myself....hmmm so less pesticide in baby food is good but then are they fresh? Cause the color and the texture looks so much different from the commercial ones. (commercial seems to have nicer color and smoother in texture)
Then I look at the price....organic is only 10 cents more ...so it's not that bad to try it out.
So I ended up buying organic ones.
Now i'm sitting here asking myself....Should I continue purchasing organic baby food?
I did some research and found out that organic foods had less residues pesticides than those conventionally grown foods (which is good) And both organic and conventional contain same amount of vitamins and minerals. (source: www.consumerreports.org) So my instinct were right.
Tips: buy in bulk and bring coupons. Ralphs do double coupon. ALWAYS check expiration dates.
