It's scary how much junk goes into our foods, often without our knowledge. We simply take for granted that our food is safe. After all, they sell it in stores, right? Not so fast...Just because something is allowed to be sold for human consumption does not automatically make it safe.
There are several things in many foods that are potentially harmful to our bodies, and more importantly, our kids' bodies. You've got preservatives, chemicals, pesticides, artificial flavors and coloring, and many more man-made additives that go into our foods. We've all heard of these and know what to look for on packaging labels.
But another, sneakier thing goes into our foods, and as of today, it's not required to be on food packaging. (Hopefully that will change soon!) These hidden additives are known as GMO's. What are GMO's? They are plants, animals, and microorganisms whose DNA have been modified by non-traditional methods.
Have you noticed that everything seems to be getting BIGGER? Larger eggs...Gigantic, mutant-like chicken breasts? Fruits and veggies of monstrous proportions? These are not natural. Chances are, farmers have manipulated them by adding hormones and other potentially harmful substances to produce higher yields. This is how GMO's make their way into our food supply.
These additives are in no way natural, and shouldn't be in our diets. The folks at Earth's Best Organic agree, and are committed to providing only the purest, organic foods for our children. No preservatives. No artificial flavors. And no GMO's. All of the ingredients in Earth's Best foods are certified organic, giving parents peace of mind when feeding their children.
