These are all obvious things that we try our best to keep our kids safe from. But there are other, much more common threats present that babies and children are exposed to every single day. These threats are often overlooked, since they appear rather innocently in our everyday lives. They hide in foods, in clothing, and even in diapers. They are also present in household cleaners and personal care products! These unseen threats are literally everywhere. Chances are, YOUR child is exposed to them each and every day, probably multiple times per day. Yes, this sounds ominous, but the effects of these threats on a person's overall well-being are very, very real. Some have even been known to pose serious health risks, including cancer!
Who are the invisible culprits? Chemicals...Preservatives...GMO's...Basically man-made substances that are added to everyday products to supposedly "help" the quality and shelf-life of the said product. Foods in particular are FULL of these things. Pesticides are sprayed on crops. This is on our food! Even with a good scrubbing, you can never really rid the produce of the chemicals, as they are saturated into the very soil that nourishes the crops. Do you want your kids eating chemical-laden foods? I don't either.
Farmers use GMO's, which are substances that are meant to genetically alter the finished product. Think of eggs that are insanely large due to hormones given to the chickens, or even monster fruits that are not naturally occurring. Although commercial farmers may disagree, 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!
If you've been a reader for awhile, you already know all about Earth's Best. I have shared a lot about this brand in the past few months. I am happy to say that my relationship with the brand is continuing, and I will continue to be an Earth's Best Blogger for another round. I am very passionate about this brand, and am proud to be able to represent them here in the blogosphere!
For those of you who aren't familiar with Earth's Best, let me tell you a bit about this wonderful brand. Over the years Earth's Best has grown to offer more than 100 products including organic infant formula, organic infant and toddler foods, and baby care products, including chlorine free diapers and wipes and a line of all-natural cleaning products. Our unwavering commitment to purity, backed by 25 years of experience, helps Earth’s Best parents nurture their babies in a way that offers peace of mind.
I personally use many, many Earth's Best products every day. As an eco-conscious mama, I love the fact that Earth's Best offers products for my babies as they grow. Sure, Earth's Best has great jarred baby food, but they are so much more than that. Their toddler snacks, meals, and pouches are amazing. My kids love them, and I love being able to give my babies things that not only taste good, but are good for them, too.
