Is Organic Baby Food Better

Updated on May 16, 2012


It is rare and in fact uncommon to find people who have no idea what organic foods are. In fact a large number of people are now changing their diets to include or become exclusively organic diets. The benefits of organic food diets for the sick, old and all people in general are proving to be one in a million. Many experts in nutritional health are continuously encouraging mothers to take up organic diets both for themselves and their children. However, mothers are often skeptical with regard to introducing new content in their child’s diets even with the encouragement of experts. Mothers tend to rely on what they have seen others do especially when they are new to motherhood. Parents do not want to experiment with their babies in diet and even other aspects of growth. However genetically modified food has come under much critic when it comes to the contribution to the health of the baby and physiological development of the child. The following are some of the benefits you will gain by feeding your child using an organic food diet:


The first and probably most important benefit of organic baby food is that it is continuously tasty. The taste of the organic foods have not been modified by any preservatives or speeded up growth and maturity. The foods have a natural taste that makes them juicier and more flavor like. Parents are often complaining about the lack of taste in manufactured or genetically modified foods. It is often difficult to modify or change the taste of the foods in any way as opposed to organic foods which can easily be made much tastier with easy to follow recipes for your baby. The tastiness allows for constant maneuvering with recipes for your baby to make meals even more enjoyable. You will find that when you introduce an organic diet, your baby will enjoy meal times more than with the genetically modified diets. Your baby will be more inclined to eat since the food changes taste often, the texture is friendlier and the food in general is exciting. For example fruit juices made from organic fruits are much juicier with excellent taste and often require no additional sugar yet they have higher mineral and nutritional content ideal for your baby. Organic baby foods make feeding time less stressful for you and your baby since the food is so enjoyable.


The most highlighted benefit of organic food is the lack of pesticides and chemical residues. Organic food farms do not use the artificial pesticides and chemicals that leave harmful residues in the food. In addition, the manufactured food and genetically modified foods additionally have undergone further chemical processing to add flavor and increase their preservative state. For this reason, you may find that often you are ingesting more chemicals than nutritional value when it comes to manufactured and non-organic food. On the other hand organic food carries with it the natural flavor and no additional preservatives thereby reducing significantly the intake of chemicals in your diet. Organic foods are processed in their natural state, giving you high nutritional value that not only ensures that you get enough nutritional diet maintenance. Organic diets allow you and your family to develop proper immunity and strength for yourself through a proper diet. With organic food you reduce the chemical intake in your body and although the effects of the pesticides and genetically modifying chemicals are yet to be established conclusively, experts often feel that there are some effects even if they are yet to be established conclusively.


When you introduce an organic diet to your baby at an early stage you realize that they are able to maintain a healthy diet even in adulthood. Babies are much healthier on the organic diet. They eat more because the food is tastier and increased nutritional content not only ensures increased weight but also heightened physical and psychological development. Organic foods have less hydrogenated and saturated fats, that often cause weight increase and make it difficult to maintain a good weight in your children. In today’s society, you will find that maintaining proper weight for children as they grow up in the age where fast foods are becoming common and a great danger to the youth is quite hard. However, if you introduce organic foods into your baby’s diets you will find that you are able to control their weight and ensure that your baby remains healthy without much hustle. There are experts who actually recommend a completely organic health diet as a technique of combating developmental issues in your baby. Even with large portions, organic diets still have much lower fat contents than the manufactured and genetically modified foods. In addition, organic foods generally do not require be frying and saturating in order to become tasty. Even boiled or steamed the food often has some great tastes.


Babies on organic food diets develop a much stronger immunity to common diseases than children on manufactured and genetically modified diets. Children and especially infants are constantly under attack from foreign bacteria and viruses, which can easily cause deterioration in the health of your child. The developed world today has so many foreign substances in the water, air and even the environment itself. As the bay continues to grow they are exposed to new environments on a daily basis, small bacteria and infection can prove difficult to handle if your child has not developed the proper immunity. With an organic diet, your baby has higher chances of developing the much needed immunity. For the best results, it is important to ensure you’re your baby’s diet is almost always organic with as few genetically modified foods as possible. Doctors, nutritionists and even pediatricians agree that an organic diet gives your child more immunity to protect the newly developing bacteria, viruses and diseases while at the same time protecting the baby from known viruses and bacteria that they are susceptible to such as rotavirus.

The increased nutritional value of the organic food means that your baby does not need to eat a large portion in order to get the required daily nutritional content. With a small portion, your baby can get all the required nutritional content you need. With the genetically modified foods, large portions are quite necessary to replenish the body of your child. Therefore you do not need to fight with your child to eat the large portions set apart for the day. Even with quite small portions the child gains as much nutritional content as they require developing properly.


Finding organic baby food is quite simple, although there is no specific way of telling organic food apart from the genetically modified food. The simplest technique would be to preferably visit local organic food stores for your supply. Although not all experts agree on the benefits of organic baby food, it is hard to refute the facts that often speak for themselves. Compromise is not an option when it comes to the health of your child, the baby must always get the best in terms of food and other physiological requirements. Organic foods increase the optimum performance and development of the baby’s organs including the liver and kidney ensuring that digestion is completed easily. While other parents suffer with constipation and constant diarrhea brought about by the genetically modified foods. You will find that your child digests the organic food easily and does not suffer from these conditions.
