Organic food for babies
Many families have already chosen to opt for food based on organic products for the first years of life of their children. In this blog post we tell you why, what are the benefits of organic baby food and what kind of organic baby products can be found on the market.
The arrival of a new member to the family brings many concerns for both new and experienced parents; what is the best food for babies, what should babies eat in their first months of life, or is organic food better for babies, are some of the most frequently asked questions.
Babies’ fragile organisms are unable to assimilate the harmful substances left in food, whether these are generated by pollution, the use of pesticides or the chemicals used to make them.
Organic food guarantees that it is environmentally friendly and respects the life of animals, and also that it cares for the health of the younger members of the house, from a production that is free of pesticides, chemicals and transgenics, offering high quality natural products.
In addition, did you know that the massive and inappropriate use of some insecticides and herbicides causes the death by poisoning of about 200,000 people a year, especially in developing countries? According to Hilal Elver and Baskut Tuncak, UN Special Rapporteurs: “It is time to dispel the myth that pesticides are necessary to feed the world… The overuse of pesticides is very dangerous to human health and the environment, and it is also misleading to claim that these chemicals are vital to ensure food security”. If you want to know more about this, we recommend you don’t miss our post: “Why should we avoid pesticides” in which we talk about this problem and inform about all the advantages of organic food for human health and the care of fauna and flora.
On the other hand, organic baby food promotes the use of natural fertilisers in agriculture, encourages biodiversity instead of monoculture and guarantees the quality of life of animals.
In the market we can find a great variety of organic products that are ideal for our little ones, such as rice dishes with chicken or beef or other vegetarian options of baby dishes made with fruits, vegetables and cereals. There are also many references of certified organic gluten-free juices and yoghurt that children just love.
Organic Boosting has a large catalogue of organic references for the whole family, including products for babies from 4 months onwards.
Guaranteeing the quality of our products is essential for us, as is feeding the future promises of the organic world!
