Madeleine says ...
"Eating organic is something I've always prioritised for myself, so when I'm feeding my son Shay I've always tried to make sure as much of what he eats as possible is organic too. Organic ingredients are ingredients which are grown without pesticides, as nature intended. Children are even more susceptible to the potential toxicity of chemicals and a growing body of research suggests that feeding your children organic produce is superior for healthy development. I also prioritise buying organic produce so that I can support local and small scale farmers who are putting effort into growing produce organically which is more expensive and time consuming but in turn delivers healthier and often more delicious ingredients to turn into delicious and nourishing food for the whole family ...
