Organic Baby Food – Do not buy any brand until you read this!

Food manufacturers do not want to let you know the annoying parts of some organic baby food

Most organic baby food is

Others are large businesses, just to get a piece "Organic pies" – although they can still scrape in accordance with the regulations, call themselves "organic baby food" some of which is not very good for your baby, and there is no better than non-organic varieties.

Read the following tips to help you tell the brand is not good!

Is organic certification?

Many brands place "organic" on the label in the absence of any provisions or genuine organic place. Only trust the brand with "organic certification" and label it on its label. In the United States, the main certification mark is the US Department of Agriculture, but there are many other packages – what is it made?

  • Is it plastic? If yes, make sure it is BPA Free.
  • Do not heat any material made of plastic (even if it is microwave safe!), Because heat can cause all kinds of dangerous toxins to leach from all plastics and enter the food. (Especially microwave ovens)
  • If you need to heat the item, pour the contents into a glass, ceramic or stainless steel container
  • Is it recyclable? Always buy food in a recyclable package – and remember to recycle! Every little jar is considered!
  • How many packs are used Do not support companies that do not care about our environment, and who uses multi-layered packaging. For example, a jar, in a cardboard box, and then wrapped in plastic. Instead, choose to support companies that use only one level of packaging.

    Baby food really should just be a component – your food is feeding your baby! (19459002) However, when you buy any prefabricated packaged food (organic or non-contained), you need some other ingredients, such as preservatives to keep Quality and thickeners / stabilizers to ensure good consistency

    The percentage of the main ingredient will determine the quality of the food as well as the company's ethics.

    Do not buy any baby food without the main ingredient in the list of ingredients in the first, or there are many other ingredients as well as the main ingredient

    For example, the green bean paste raw material should be green beans. There may be a little citric acid (lemon juice) or vitamin c

    The bottom line is the less ingredient the better, the more pure, the closer to nature, this food will be!

    Preservation Methods – Fresh or Frozen?

    Frozen food is always the best. They contain less (if any) preservatives, because freezing is a preserving method. They are also more nutritious because they are frozen quickly after harvest or preparation, thus locking in good food.

    Room temperature food in bags or cans is not very fresh or nutritious. They have preservatives (organic baby food will have natural preservatives). Or if there is no preservative, the food has been heat treated to kill the bacteria and seal the jar or pouch, which raises some problems;

    • Chemical substances in packaging can be dipped into food during heating
    • Heating food also kills vitamins and minerals as well as nutritious levels! So your food may be "safe", no bacteria, long shelf life – but all the benefits of eating fresh organic baby food have been killed! The longer the level of nutrition, the longer it is on shelves
    • Food and recipes now contain additional additives – which may sound like you are good – but before considering marketing speculation first consider

      Any "strengthen" diet need to be careful to deal with "rich", " Supplemental "or" add nutritious "substances such as DHA or ARA (synthetic version of Omega 3 fatty acids), iron, vitamin C or similar substances, but if you are breastfeeding (AAP recommended until 12 months), then you The baby should get all of these things from you.

      If you feed a variety of organic fruits and vegetables for your baby, they will get a lot of iron and vitamin needs from these foods.

      If your baby is a formula, they may Will miss some essential fatty acids, which is why many baby formula brands have strengthened DHA & ARA

      However – the jury is still in the safety of these additives in food synthesis. So – in my opinion – until the jury came in, I was avoiding them. Read more Read this article http://pediatrics.about.com/cs/nutrition/a/dha_ara.htm

      Company Overall

      While this may not affect the actual quality of food, I like to visit companies that offer each product to decide whether or not to use my money to support them.

      I prefer to support small companies because they tend to be more ethical, sustainable and localized, and I think I am very familiar

      What other products do they sell?

      Do they only sell certified organic and other health products? Or are they a big company, who made non-organic baby food and decided to make an organic version?

      I tend not to support this kind of company because, in my opinion, they may start making organic baby food money and market share not because they really believe.

      What kind of marketing do they use?

      Whether the company makes sugar or salty "junk" food, still tells consumers that they are healthy

      Breakfast food is the worst of many, many cereals and breakfast foods Are sold in the form of "health", but common sense, and quick look at the ingredients of sugar and salt, otherwise you will tell you.

      I would rather not support a company that misleads consumers in this way
