So, you're about to have your first baby and you've been toying with the idea of incorporating organic baby food into your grocery routine. If that's the case, you're going to either fall into the category of people who just go out and buy whatever has the word “organic” splashed on the jar, or you're going to be the kind of person who does a little research first so that you really understand what you're buying.
Another option you might be interested in is making your own baby food. At least when you make your own baby food, there's no added preservatives. However, unless the food you're using to make the baby food is certified organic, you're not necessarily making baby food that's any better for the baby than what you'd buy in the store.
Organic produce is made in soil that hasn't been treated with artificial fertilizers, pesticides, etc. When you make your own organic baby food, you're also keeping artificial food colorings and additives out of your baby's diet.
If you can't imagine finding the time or energy to make your own organic baby food, search the Internet for a couple different good quality brands. Do a little research about the company that makes the organic baby food, check out the Food and Drug Administration for any warnings or recalls, etc. Once you feel comfortable that you've found a brand of organic baby food with a good track record, the only thing left to do is go shopping.
