Another thing I need to worry about as a parent is the addition of GMO's in my children's food and drinks. What's a GMO? Don't worry. Most people don't know what GMO's are. As a matter of fact, I didn't know wither until I was pregnant with my Sophie and researching ways to be a little bit "greener" in my home. GMO's are plants, animals, or microorganisms whose DNA has been modified using non-traditional methods.
The use of GMO's is becoming increasingly common, from cows that are given hormones to produce more milk to chickens (or other animals) that are "fattened up" for more meat or eggs. The chickens have the eggs, not the other animals, obviously! Crops like fruits and veggies are also affected by the use of GMO's as farmers use them as a method of producing bigger, higher yielding crops. The use of GMO's is bad, since when we consume these products, these additives enter our bodies, too. I don't know about you, but kids grow quickly enough without "help" from GMO's, and I don't want these substances in their bodies if I can help it!
