For years now my home is chemical-free.
All my cleaning products are made with organic products that are better for our health and are non-toxic.
Now it’s time to go with organic food.
Organic food is free of pesticides. No pesticides on the growing process of your fruits and vegetables.
Organic means the way the products are grown and processed. Without any synthetic pesticide and GMO, petroleum-based and sewage sludge-base fertilizers.
Organic food is food produced by methods that comply with the standards of organic farming. Standards vary worldwide, but organic farming features practices that cycle resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. Organizations regulating organic products may restrict the use of certain pesticides and fertilizers in the farming methods used to produce such products. Organic foods typically are not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or synthetic food additives.
Livestock raised for meat, eggs, and dairy products must have access to outdoor and be given organic feed. They may not be given antibiotics, growth hormones, or any animal by-products.

How to encourage children to eat healthy food?
Children will follow your pattern, eat healthily and the will do the same. Give them homemade snacks instead of store-bought. Have plenty of fruits available for them to snack on. Offer them some hummus to dip their veggies in it.
I used to make my baby food from scratch at home. Cooking the fresh veggies and puree them. I was using ice trays to freeze them then keeping the cubes in a freezer container. It was easy to worm it out as needed. Today you can find a great varieties of organic baby food available in the markets.
