Health Benefits of Organic Food for Children

We often hear that organic, and especially certified organic food is healthier for children, but what are the actual benefits? Overall, the growing, sourcing and handling practices that are used in producing organic fruit, vegetables, dairy and meats are aimed at providing products that are cleaner and closer to the way they were grown before mass (conventional) farming became routine.

Organic vs non-organic food nutrients – how do they compare?

There is a long-held belief that farming practices don’t make a real difference to food quality. But this belief is being questioned. Supporters of organic foods suggest that although it produces a lower yield, it has better nutritional quality and is cleaner, because of the strict standards of food authorities that prevent the use of synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides and fertilizers, and promote sustainable farming practices.
