Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides

Earth Day is this week so today we encourage you to purchase some organic fruits and vegetables.

Download this Environmental Working Group Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides to remember which fruits and vegetables have the most pesticides.

The fruits and vegetables with the highest pesticide load should be bought organically.

For example, you definitely should consider only buying organic peaches and apples, but you might not need to worry about buying organic onions or avocados.

Do you serve the children organic foods? If so which organic foods do you serve your charges?

My employer Dad is a doctor and he says there is not clinical proof that buying organic is better or worthwhile. Just because there is no study yet we ought to use common sense. Who wants pesticides fed to our kids?!
