Why Organic for Your Kids?

 

As more and more natural food stores and organic brands surface, its getting easier for you and your family to eat organic, which is a good thing considering all the health benefits of an all-natural diet. But, what does “organic” really mean for your kid’s body, the environment and future generations? And why should you consider investing in it for your child?

Here are 6 main reasons from Village Organics-

  • Organic food is chemical-freeWhat most people don’t know is that conventionally grown food is sprayed with a host of chemicals. Many of these chemicals are known to be endocrine and hormone disrupters, sometimes leading to obesity and diabetes. Even if you wash or peel fresh fruits and vegetables before your kids eat them, chemicals still make their way in.
    Changing a child’s diet to organic foods can almost completely eliminate these chemicals from his body!
  • A clean little body is a healthy little body. Many studies have found a strong connection between pesticide exposure in pregnant women and lower IQs in their children; pesticide exposure in children themselves and a greater risk of ADHD; and pesticide exposure and both cancer and Parkinson’s disease in humans of all ages.
  • Eating organic makes kids feel good about their choices!Being a responsible citizen of the planet is one of the most important lessons a child needs to learn.With a little bit of education, kid’s understand that their choices have a huge impact on the world around them--the farmer who grows the food, the environment and future generations.
    Your child will realize that he can help others with everything he eats! 
  • Teach your child to think about farmers.It’s great for your kids to learn to think about the people who grow their food. Farm workers and their kids are often exposed to high levels of pesticides on a daily basis, which affects their health. 
    Encourage your child to realise that he can help others with everything he eats!
  • Help feed future generations. Our bodies aren’t the only things affected by how we choose to eat. Modern agriculture depletes topsoil which takes hundreds of years to form. On the other hand, organic farming actually replaces topsoil faster than it can erode it. 
    Choosing organic can help preserving our Earth’s natural resources for our future generations. 
  • Organic gardening teaches kids to love vegetables!Teaching your child to plant his food, watch it grow and pick it straight from a plant to eat, will encourage him to love and enjoy healthy food!
  • Organic food tastes better!  

    If going 100% organic sounds like too big a step for you right now, don’t fear – any small little steps you take are worth it!
