If you’ve not already checked out the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen checklist, I can’t recommend it enough! While 100% organic, or as close to it as possible is ideal – it’s not always possible and it’s not always affordable. For times when you have to be selective about what foods to buy organic, it’s a good idea to have the newest version of the Dirty Dozen list on hand. Thankfully the EWG has a handy iphone app so you’ll never be without it. Even if you don’t have a smart phone you can still download the guide, print it out, and keep it in your wallet.
Have family members who’s aren’t fully on board with organic? Forward them this link to the Dirty Dozen guide and explain to them that at a minimum, it’s important that your children eat organic versions of those whenever possible!
