Organic! They're so small with tiny livers and kidneys etc. Any traces of pesticides or antibiotics or whatever in non organic food is more of a prob for them. I make baby's food myself...organic mostly. They're only small like this for a while, you may as well do the very best you can...let them choose the easy options for themselves when it comes to it.

Quoting Cara:

I think there is a huge difference, just as there is in any organic vs. nonorganic food. There are tons of dangerous things in non organic food and for babies, who have a harder time ridding their bodies of toxins, it is really important to get only healthy safe things in and on their bodies.

Organic is better for us and our babies. If u can afford it great, if not Its not going to hurt them, I but earths best organic and make my own. Whatever is the best and convient for you, you should do.

Hi, I live in Ukraine, can you say farming community? Yeah, well there you have it. Organic. I make my own food here. It is relatively fast and easy. There are many things that I cannot get but if you live in the States it is easier to get everything you want. I like to make him veggies like carrots and zucchini. We eat lots of apples sauce. I give him canned when we travel. A great one is bananas because they travel well (for short distances). I hope that your hunt for organic goes well. Try an outdoor Farmer's Market or the local fruit stand. That stuff comes directly from the farmer. What could be better? Have a great day.

if you can I would go organic, one super easy homeade is to steam discs of organic zucchini & puree it, the skin gives it a great green & it actually tastes really good! my daughter loved it!

Hi Michelle!
Always remember whatever your decisions, you are doing your best. It means so much to see a mom willing to do research and find out healthy choices for their child. I have made almost a total switch to organic foods. I find the difference in the way my children behave, as well as their skin and hair, have improved since then. Your definition of best is up to you. If you feel better about buying organically grown produce, dairy, and meats go for it. Not only is it good for the environment, it's great knowing you are taking in something free of carcinogens, pesticides, and growth hormones. Some pesticides can be reduced by washing produce, but it is in the produce, because it gets into the soil as well, which is how the food grows. Processing the baby food doesn't get rid of them.The fda says whats o k or not o k for everything babies eat, but..... knowing for yourself is always best. I certainly feel better about it, knowing I am giving my kids the best, earth has to offer. In a world where so much of what our babies take in, is not up to us, giving them organic is a good part of having a say so. Best of luck =)

I am not positive all the differences but I can tell you that my son didn't care whether it was organic or not. My daughter on the other hand wouldn't eat any baby food unless it was by Earths Best (organic) she loved it. Now she is 18 months old and she still will eat it if I give it to her.

Hi! I cannot answer for the jar foods I guess read the labels and make your best judgement, they go through processing so that would burn any pesticides right? Myself I would highly reccomend making your own baby food. It really is a lot easier than people say, especially for first foods, microwave , steam or boil than blend. You will know where the veggies came from (organic or not, even from your own garden!) you can freeze leftovers or just cook what you need and its always fresh, and cheaper too. Good luck, enjoy feeding your baby, it is lots of fun to see them enjoy there food.
