Prioritize your organic purchases
Use your organic dollars wisely. Low-residue produce such as bananas (you peel them before eating) might not be worth the
extra cost. (See how to pick produce wisely.) Also, skip packaged and canned organic items, like soups, cookies and pancake mix―not only are they expensive, but they
give the least bang for your nutritional buck.
BONUS TIP: Babies and toddlers are more vulnerable to the possible effects of pesticides. Make a list of the fruits and veggies your young ones eat most (say, carrots and apples) and consider buying the organic versions, including baby food.
