Protecting Your Child From Pesticides

If you’re worried about possible contaminants in the produce you feed your toddler, there’s a simple way to ease your mind:

Washing fruit and vegetables thoroughly will remove the residue of most chemicals applied before or after harvest, helping you avoid giving your toddler fruit and vegetables containing synthetic pesticides.

Foods with the 100% organic label, while more expensive, are also free of synthetic pesticides. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), these products “must contain (excluding water and salt) only organically produced ingredients and processing aids.”
