Organic Baby Food

2023 Dirty Dozen & Clean Fifteen

Have you ever heard of the Dirty Dozen or the Clean Fifteen? The Environmental Working Group (EWG) releases an updated list of foods with the most and the least pesticides every year.

Almost 75% of non-organic produce contains residues of potentially harmful pesticides. Because children are particularly vulnerable to health harms from pesticide exposure, it helps to know which foods to prioritize to buy organic and which foods you can skip.

Check out the lists for 2023 when shopping for your family.
