If you're looking to locate, try local farmer's or produce markets in your area. In the summer, in the US, these markets abound in almost any community.

Or, grow your own little garden! You'd be amazed at how little effort it takes to have some fresh produce that you've grown yourself. I didn't think I'd be able to, but I proved myself wrong 15 years ago, and have had a garden ever since. It doesn't have to be huge, a simple container will do for starters. A couple heads of lettuce, a couple choices of fresh veggies that you like, and you're off and running!

Organic and local is best, but not necessary. If it isn't available, it won't hurt anything. Just make the best choices, for example frozen fruits and veggies as opposed to canned. Also TV dinners are chocked full of sodium as are most soups. Cook from scratch if you can so you can control what goes into dinner. The sodium in the pre-made foods are mostly for preserving, not so much for taste. But that much salt will cause health problems later, kids can get health problems too. Good luck! :-)
