An organic pregnancy diet
Pregnancy is a time when great care and attention needs to be given to women. During this time the fetus gets its food and nutrition through the food that the mother ingests.

An organic diet during pregnancy helps to minimize the amount of accidental pesticide consumption which can adversely affect both mother and child.

Researcher has discovered that some pesticides still manage to slip through the placenta and are passed on to your baby, and a foetus isn’t developed enough to get rid of chemicals. As a matter of fact, pesticides have been found in amniotic fluid, umbilical cord blood and breast milk. Eating organically while pregnant helps to keep the womb clear of chemicals, allowing the baby to grow properly and healthily.

Furthermore an organic diet helps avoid consumption of antibiotics that are injected into animals. In the long run, bacteria in animals treated with antibiotics can become resistant to those antibiotics. And a subsequent exposure to such bacteria may prove more difficult to treat in humans.

Organic foods are also supposed to be free of additives such as artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives, which have been linked to ADHD or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, in kids according to some studies.

A healthy baby is what every expectant parent wants. Being on an organic diet will help keep your baby and yourself free of toxins.
