Pesticides and drug-resistant bacteria. They are not the type of things that you want to feed your kids. And the argument used to be that you are risking your child’s health by feeding them conventionally grown fruits and vegetables contaminated with the stuff, so you should feed them organic produce instead.
While the long term health risks of eating non-organic fruits and vegetables to this day have never been conclusively proven, one thing is for sure; organic food contains less pesticides and drug-resistant bacteria. So if you can afford to, it’s better to be risk free and feed your children organic fruits and veg. And that is especially true now that growing organic food is easier than ever.
