Going to the grocery store isn't as easy as it used to be. We're not talking about the impossible hummer-sized shopping carts: It's the food.
We all try to fill our families' dinner plates with healthy nosh, but really, what's in a name? Is "organic" that much better than "vegetarian-fed"? What about those other catchy labels? Grass-fed, corn-fed, cage-free, hormone-free, free-range.
It sounds more like a line from a Dr. Seuss book than a grocery list. So how do we know what's what?
Before Field Moms: The moms bought all varieties of milk, including whole, 2 percent, skim, organic, soy and raw whole milk.
After Field Moms: A couple of moms changed the kind of milk they purchased. Both said they no longer buy organic milk because they better understood the role of antibiotics and hormones in dairy production.
Insight: "After my experience as a Field Mom, I made a few changes. First, I do not buy organic milk unless I mistakenly grab the wrong gallon. I am just not convinced it is worth it." - Amy Hansmann
