Organic baby food comes from ecological crops that use no fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides or other types of chemicals. Vegetables, fruits, meat, eggs and dairy products are produced according to traditional agriculture, depending on the gifts of Mother Nature alone. Over the last five years, the production of organic baby food has increased proportionately with the market demand.

With non-organic products, the body also absorbs the chemical substances used for treating the food. The system cannot eliminate all of these chemicals, and in time they tend to accumulate, clog the organs and cause an intoxication of the body. This is often a very harsh test for a young body.
The number of organic baby food items allows for allows for diet variation. Organic cereals are among the most popular for instance, since they can be introduced in the baby’s diet between four and six months of age. You should start with organic rice flakes and continue with barley, rye, wheat, corn and their combinations. Lots of manufacturers of organic baby food produce varieties of combined cereal matching different stages of development. Besides cereal, everything the baby eats has to be as pure as possible.
The choice of fruit and vegetables seems to be the least demanding, because organic products in this category are easy to find even in hypermarkets in the organic food section.

Such products are usually sterilized and enriched with vitamins for a superior nutritive value. Plus, more nutrients and superior quality of the ingredients results from the organic nature of such food.
