12 organic baby items worth splurging on


2, 3 Organic fruits and veggies

Why you should splurge

Dr. Scott Goldstein, a pediatrician at Northwestern Children's Practice, tries to stick to the dirty dozen rule for his kids. Fruits and vegetables with a thin skin-or no skin at all-are on the list, and Goldstein limits the amount of pesticides his children ingest by going organic on the following 12 items: apples, celery, strawberries, peaches, spinach, nectarines, grapes, peppers, potatoes, blueberries, lettuce and kale.

Our favorite

Square One is an organic baby food company created by Denise Henderson, a River Forest mom of twins who wanted to give her children the healthiest start possible. They come frozen in BPA-free packaging, and they have no additives or preservatives. Our 7-month-old tester loved everything except the quinoa and the broccoli.
