New Report Reveals Shocking Toxins Found in Your Baby’s Food

What’s in your baby’s food?

When my boys were babies, I made most of their baby food homemade. I’d steam fruits and vegetables and then puree them. They absolutely loved most of the flavors … except green beans!

Because I was a stay-at-home mom, making my own baby food was convenient. I’d freeze leftovers and warm up on the stove top.

But there were times when I would have to buy baby food from a jar, as well as rice cereals and baby rice snacks for on-the-go. Never did it cross my mind that what I was feeding my babies could be dangerous.

A new report found toxins in hundreds of baby products. HUNDREDS.

Ellipse Analytics is an accredited lab in Denver, Colorado, teamed up with The Clean Label Project, a nonprofit advocating for transparent labeling. They tested baby food, infant formulas, toddler drinks and snacks purchased within the past five months. Many manufacturers of baby food, don’t test for heavy metals, but they wanted to know what’s hiding behind the labels of the food children are eating.

They looked at top-selling formulas and baby food using Nielson data, and also included emerging national brands.
