In her article "Back to School: 7 Tips for Kids with Food Allergies," http://blogs.prevention.com/inspired-bites/2013/08/14/back-to-school-7-tips-for-kids-with-food-allergies/ Robyn O'Brien pointed out how quickly US food allergy rates have risen since the late '90s. And she wondered if the increase could have anything to do with U.S. food now being "so hopped up on so many artificial ingredients, artificial growth hormones, dyes and genetically engineered ingredients."
A list of some food brands you can trust. Big Food brands like General Mills, Kellog, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, M&M, etc. are buying up small organic brands who don't have our health in their best interest. For example, General Mills now owns Cascadian Farms, Muir Glen & LaraBar. Kellog owns Morning Star, Kashi & Bear Naked. Pepsi owns Naked Juice. The best way to go is to grow your own, or shop local! Try your farmer's market, hit up a local CSA or Co op.
