The World’s Healthiest Foods provide numerous benefits for everyone, especially children.
Because our children’s bodies are in a state of growth and development, they need a constant supply of all nutritional building blocks – protein, essential fats, complex carbohydrates, and a full complement of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients — to support healthy growth. Furthermore, because of their smaller size and still developing immune and detoxification systems, reducing the exposure of our very young children to potentially harmful chemicals may play a significant role in promoting a healthy future for them. Some recent research studies have suggested that the exposure we have to carcinogens and toxins in our youth may predispose us to a higher risk of some types of cancers later in life. Maximizing the health potential of our children means minimizing their exposure to toxins, such as pesticides.
