As parents we only want the absolute best for our children. Sound machines to sleep well, flashcards to stimulate their brain (they will be advanced… yes, I’m that Mom) and toys to hit those developmental milestones. Okay, I’m kidding about most of that list, but I do ensure they have a diet that is packed with healthy, organic nutrients to help them thrive.
Why organic you ask?
Choosing organic foods and cereals for your little ones refers to the way farmers grow and process products, such as fruit, vegetables, grains, dairy and meat. Farmers don’t use chemical fertilisers or pesticides in organic foods, also causing less pollution and dangerous waste. When non-orgnanic food is produced it arrives at the grocery store with chemicals like glyphosate in it. Glyphosate is an herbicide used by grain farmers to kill weeds. The healthy bacteria in our gut actually possesses the same critical biochemical pathways as weeds. Foods that contain glyphosate can wipe out your much needed gut flora that is important for a healthy immune system. Let that sink in for a minute.
After the age of one we started the twins on organic cow’s milk. Shortly after that I started to notice patches of dry, red areas popping up all over Ranger’s legs, the creases behind his knees and back of his arms. He was diagnosed with eczema. As a dermatology nurse I was already well aware of irritants to babies delicate skin. We use natural skin care products, and laundry detergents free of chemicals to help protect his skin. So I started looking at his diet more closely to see if that could be what was exacerbating his skin condition. By eliminating foods and checking his skin for improvement we were able to narrow it down to cow’s milk.
