Baby Step #3 Comparing Apples to Oranges (and Squash to Zucchini!)

So last week a study was published in Pediatrics that hit all the media outlets (news and social alike!). Lots of Mama’s took notice, too! Including ME, who has been questioning ALOT lately what is in our food and the safety of it for our kids health (and our own!).

Anyway, the study linked pesticides (specifically organophosphates) to increased incidences of ADHD. You can read the full journal article here in Pediatrics, read a summary about it here on CNN

    Have you seen any fresh berries at the Katy Farmers Market yet? Strawberries and blueberries are probably our faves here and I would love to be able to affordably switch to local and/or organic.
