So we recently switched over to as much organic as possible. By recent I mean about two months ago. It's made a huge difference in our family, one of which is now if we eat at friends or families houses it's a disaster zone the next day. All the chemical crap that they get fed when they spend the day with grandma or go to a birthday party, or for example go to grandmas for mothers day dinner like last night. Some of these things are unavoidable, we have to go. But I hate the next day! My kids don't listen, and drive me insane, not to mention they both wind up with the runs. It's gotten to the point I want to take our own food when we go places which I think most people would find incredibly rude. Is there anyone else to hates going anywhere other than home to eat? is there any way to avoid the unpleasantries of the next day? HELP!!!!

this weekend in itself was a nightmare. We had a birthday party on saturday and dinner at grandmas last night. Sure enough my little girl woke up with a tummy ache after the party on saturday, and an exploded diaper this morning. My son seems to be fine with it though, I wonder if maybe she'll grow out of it. I'm thinking the feed them a snack before we go is a good idea though. Maybe then they won't eat so much while we're there. do you guys also use other organic products like soaps and stuff? one of the things I realized after posting this this morning is we've only juust started having nice weather here so the kids and I have been slathered with sunscreen for the last 4 days. It's pretty much the only chemicals I've used on them so I'm wondering if thats contributing to the behaviour I've been noticing. It's driving me insane! Normally I've got two decently well behaved kids who drive me up the wall. But especially this morning they were like two different children! The kids that I never want to hang out with their parents cause they're so bad!

We do eat mostly all organic, we have my kids entire lives. It is basically how I was raised but we do not avoid other peoples houses. It does not seem to affect my kids at all. They eat everything in moderation and they are fine. Sometimes if I know we are going to a party or somewhere with a lot of junk I feed them a pretty good snack on the way there so they are not that hungry and I have a snack for when we leave.
