There are many reasons to start your kids on a healthy preferably organic diet from an early age.
The term ‘organic’ means that the food is a product of a farming system which avoids the use of man-made fertilizers and pesticides on the crops, feeding additives to the livestock, using radiation and genetically modified organisms .
Research points to the benefits of a balanced diet that includes certified organic foods as it is absent of chemicals from pesticides, that may affect the child’s developing body and brain.
While hormones and chemicals in responsibly grown non-organic food are small, research suggests that even low levels of pesticide exposure in an extended period of time can affect young children’s neurological and behavioral development, with evidence showing links between pesticide exposure to neonatal reflexes, psychomotor and mental development, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder .
Another reason of switching children to an organic diet is to reduce their exposure to organophosphates, a type of neurotoxicant pesticide that can cause significantly lower activity in the central and peripheral nervous system. It can be found in many commercially produced non-organic foods .
The case for switching over to a more organic diet especially for kids is strong. However, children have minds of their own and tend to like the chemically coloured, artificially flavoured snack foods and highly processed fast foods. Sigh.
One strategy that has worked for parents is to start them young on healthy eating so that they develop the taste for good food, if possible organic food. This approach does require some creativity from parents but can result in children who have a preference for better, healthier food that can result in healthier food choices.
