Keeping Kids Healthy
23 March 2011
At Perfect Organics our philosophy has always been “there is no long term health or beauty without clean air, water, and soil”. When we choose organic foods and body care products we are supporting organic agriculture, which helps keep the water we drink and the air we breathe clean. Eating organic foods and choosing organic body care products assists us in having fewer toxins in our bodies and maintaining a healthier environment. Children in particular need extra nourishment and protection as their bodies are developing and growing. “Social Work Today” posted an article titled: “Chemical Kids – Environmental Toxins and Child Development” by Dan Orzech. According to the article, there are 85,000 chemicals registered in the U.S. Additionally, “There’s a growing body of evidence making a connection between how well children perform in school and life and toxins in their environment.” With this in mind, making sure children are eating healthy, nutritious, organic foods is of utmost importance. We also can’t forget that as children’s immune systems are being built, 60% of what they put on their skin can eventually be absorbed into their bloodstreams. As adults, toxins affect us all… imagine how much greater effect toxins have on young growing children. We have the responsibility of choice and making the best, healthiest choices for ourselves and our children. With that said… we are thrilled to offer a savings coupon from Mom Made Foods with every online purchase at Perfect Organics. Mom Made Foods has become our favorite because they provide delicious, organic meal selections and they are easy to prepare. We love the Cheesy Mac and the Fiesta Rice meals and….the Bean Burrito Munchie. You can check them out at www.mommadefoods.com.
