Organic Baby FoodFriday, February 24, 2006
So everyone has probably heard by now that organic food is the healthier choice, especially during a time where many foods are genetically altered or have come into contact with some type of chemical. My husband and I have chosen to raise our daughter on organic food as much as possible. While we have found a good selection of solid baby food, we were quite surprised to find that not one store in Toronto carried an organic baby formula. We actually had to order online from an American website that shipped cases to us over the border. When we called around to stores that carried organic food, such as the Big Carrot or Whole Foods in downtown Toronto, we found out that they don't carry such a product since the labels weren't bilingual. It's a wonder that they haven't opened up the organic baby formula market to Canada, even moreso that no one has decided to manufacture any here in Canada. What are they waiting for?
