I fed Liam Gerber yesterday. I had no choice. It was the only baby food we could afford at the moment and now I feel guilty. He has eaten sweet potatoes plentiful of times, but this time his poop was BRIGHT orange, which has NEVER happened until I fed him non-organic jar food....more
One day I was standing in the kitchen at work, staring off into space vacantly, as is my proclivity, when a co-worker asked me to tell her a story about Fairtrade wine. I had nothing. I searched the dusty recesses of my brain for what I may have learned at sommelier school and still, I had nothing. Organic and biodynamic wines, yes, something distant was registering there.

Organic grapes, yes. Organic pasta, no. Organic bananas. Maybe? Should you bother buying organic food for your child?

Cross posted from Down To Earth, my digest links of interest for the week.
We're starting a new feature this week: a digest of links I and my
partners-in-blogging-crime have come across recently. Many of which
we'd love to have featured full-length analyses, but the rest of life
intervened. Some are great resources and some are merely intersting.
Some open questions, because I'm curious!
are you worried about the quality of food available at conventional grocery stores?
how frequently do you purchase organic vegetables and/or pasture raised meat, vegetarian-fed chickens, etc. over conventionally grown/raised foods?
do you find yourself eat less of certain foods, i.e. fish, because of pollutant or contamination fears?
do you check the ingredients list on processed foods and try to avoid items with heavily processed ingredients, preservatives and chemicals, like corn syrup and artificial colorings?
