A stupid question to most of you, I'm sure.
Let me explain.
My dh is asking me why we have to by all of this 'organic stuff' for my 12 month old ds. We didn't eat organic foods before, so he's wanting to know what's so much better about organic stuff than the other (read: CHEAPER) stuff we've always bought before.
My dh is a sort of analytical, scientific, research-oriented type. He's an engineer. And he's....how shall I say.....
"thrifty". Yes, that's the word.
I told him it's more wholesome, and it makes me feel better to feed my ds really natural, wholesome foods, it's better for the environment - that sort of thing. But these are qualitative statements.
I saw a consumer reports study on the news yesterday about how a recent study by them showed that organic produce has considerably fewer pesticides & chemicals on it. But that's all they said. We don't really argue about the produce - I get those from farmer's markets. The things that I buy from the organic section of the grocery store tend to be yogurts, cookies, oat flour grahm crackers, that sort of thing.
Can anyone help me with reasons why to buy organic yogurts, and things made with organic flour and that sort of thing?
