[] Eating Healthy and Choosing Organic Vegetables and Fruit

has posted a new item, 'Eating Healthy and Choosing Organic Vegetables and

Choosing Organic Vegetables and Fruit for Babies and During Pregnancy. For
babies a purely organic diet can be very beneficial when beginning to eat solid
food. Babies have weak immune systems and need to have pure and safe foods when
they begin to eat. Organic vegetables have more flavour so your little one will
be able to taste the real flavours in his or her food. Eating fruit and
vegetables helps you to stay healthy, but it is especially important during
pregnancy. By eating organic vegetables and fruit during pregnancy you are
exposing your new baby to less toxins. How Big is a Fruit or Vegetable Portion?
80g (or a small handful) of vegetables (raw, cooked, fresh or frozen but not
potatoes)One apple, pear, orange, banana or other fruit of a similar size.2 or 3
smaller fruits such as apricots or plums.A small bunch of grapes, a handful of
cherries or half a punnet of raspberries or other berries.A glass of fruit juice
(although however many glasses you have it will only count once.)Chemicals Found
in Non Organic food. Organic food which is certified as being organic has had no
use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. None of the organic vegetables will
have genetically modified organisms (GMOs) for which the risks are still
unknown. Cox's apples could be sprayed up to 16 times with a total of 36
different chemicals. This is according to a 1998 government report. It is said
that there is no cause for concern for our health. Organic vegetables and fruit
contain almost no residues so to act on the safe side, it may be best to choose
organic for children. Some people still think that by washing their apple
before eating will remove any chemicals, but sadly this is not the case. It
will remove some of the chemicals but certainly not eliminate them as much has
already been absorbed into the skin. Nutrients Found in Organic Food Much

superior in vitamins minerals and nutrients. Organic vegetables and fruit are
especially higher in antioxidants, vitamin C, iron, magnesium, calcium and
phosphorus.Chromium is a micro nutrient that is low in the diets of Western

higher in organic foods by an average of 78%.Selenium is an antioxidant nutrient
that protects from damage by environmental chemicals. It is protective against
cancers and heart disease. In research it has been found to be an average of
390% higher in organic foods.Boron, which has been shown to help prevent
