WHICH FOODS SHOULD YOU BUY ORGANIC FOR BABIES?
Have you heard of the Dirty Dozen and the Clean 15? Each year, the Environmental Working Group publishes these two lists of the fruits and vegetables it deems to have the highest amounts of pesticides when grown conventionally rather than organically.
The EWG has compiled the list annually since 2004 based on internal data that's not peer-reviewed and it’s a very useful reference, particularly for parents wondering which foods they should buy organic when it comes to making baby food.
Using more than 40,000 samples for 47 different types of produce, the EWG listed the 12 with the most pesticide residue.
The dirty dozen and clean fifteen are two important lists to pay attention to when choosing organic baby food flavors to nourish your baby without harmful chemicals.
Here's the full list of EWG's "Dirty Dozen" for 2019:
The EWG also published a list of the "Clean 15," a.k.a. the produce from conventional growers that generally had less pesticide residue in the its tests.
Here are the "Clean Fifteen" for 2019:
2. Sweet corn
4. Sweet peas (frozen)
