Why Organic?

earths-best-ingredientsChoosing organic is choosing to live a healthier life. Organic foods are produced without the use of potentially harmful chemicals and synthetic pesticides or growth hormones. This is even more important when we consider infants. For four to six months following birth, infants receive most of their nutrition from breast milk or infant formula. It is so important that these formulas contain the safest ingredients.

If ingested, potential toxic chemicals or heavy metals can lead to compromised immune system development. Likewise, young infants consume disproportionately high levels of fruits and vegetables when compared to adults. This increases their risk of exposure to potential contaminants found among non-organic products. Finally, Earth's Best products do not contain genetically engineered ingredients (GEIs), made by inserting genes from one plant into a strain of another to produce more crops or control pests.

Why organic? It is better for you, your child and the environment they will grow up in.

This message is for concerned parents....I contacted Earth's Best today, and the rep indicated that BPA free packaging in their baby food jars began in October 2011. Hope this is helpful.

Okay. Im a very cautious parent, but the fact that there is BPA in the lids doesnt affect the food or the quality of it. BPA is an element in plastics that is excess estrogen and its recently become known that its not beneficial to let it enter our bodies. However, BPA is only activated once its been heated and since you arent heating the metal lid, the BPA never enters the food. EB baby food is spectacular especially since its jar food vs frozen/fresh. There are lots of yummy flavors and your baby will probably like most of them. Both of my sons go crazy over the EB varieties and I stick by it- buying it by the case and using the amazon subscription option makes it soo much cheaper than retail! Again... dont freak out over BPA in the lids lol.

I found Earth's Best while shopping at Target and was thrilled to find USDA certified organic baby food. My son loves the apples and pears, the bananas are a little tart but I just add a little rice cereal and it's fine. I love that Amazon.com offers subscribe and save for Earth's Best and at a cheaper price than Target or Babies "R" Us. Great packing and fast delivery!

Earth's Best is one of the few brands of baby food that, having tasted it myself, I know tastes like real food - and not only like real food, but like really GOOD food. Other brands I've tested tend to be more bland, whereas Earth's Best seems to taste like actual food instead of "baby food." My now seven-month-old daughter apparently agrees, as she has enthusiastically chowed down the contents of the entire pack (and she is a very discerning - okay, "picky" - eater). The starter kit provides an excellent sampling of the fruits that my daughter's pediatrician recommended as "starter" foods, as apples, pears, and bananas have a low probability of causing allergic reactions and do not have the adverse effects of acidic citrus fruits. My daughter has not had allergy issues with any of these, although she is prone to allergies, having even reacted adversely to oatmeal at 6 1/2 months of age. Given the expense of Earth's Best in the store (locally for us it's $1 per jar - double the Amazon subscribe & save price!), I was thoroughly impressed to find it here for such an economical price. In short, it's hard to go wrong if you're looking for a beginning sample as your baby ventures in the culinary world of his or her first fruits.

I feed both my kids Earth's Best brand baby/toddler food when I am unable to prepare food myself. All flavors have a short list of ingredients, good flavor and a nice nutrition profile.

I usually wrap these jars in a ziplock bag with a baby spoon and stash in the diaper bag for wholesome food on the go. I like to feed my toddler what my husband or I eat, but it is great having a back-up if she is really not hip to the entree.

Earths Best is the next best thing to mom's cooking ;)

Off label use:
If you are out of oil when making baked goods, like pumpkin muffins, you can add a jar of complimentary flavored baby food in a pinch and they will still come out moist! Happy accidents are worth sharing!

Love these pouches! My kids adore being able to grab and go and I know they are getting something nutritious. The mixes are tasty and I have even been known to snag one or two when on the go. I love I can rely on the organic properties and they are getting good food when we are in a rush.

I try to make most of my son's baby food, but mainly stick with veggies. I wanted to get some good baby fruit choices and I've been really impressed with Earth's Best products. My little guy LOVES these fruits. This starter kit contains pears, apples and bananas. I love that I can get this organic variety pack delivered to my door for less than some regular baby food prices at the store. I love the subscribe and save option, because 15% is a nice discount with free Prime shipping through Amazon Mom. It's a great deal for quality food.
