We should all have children that are 100%
with no additives and no preservatives.Unfortunately, we live in a society where these very ingredients are in our food supply everyday. These ingredients are literally making us sick. I am no food expert but simply human and a parent with concerns. We need to take it upon ourselves to learn more about the food we are eating. My pregnancy was a huge inspiration in my choosing to eat better.
I use peanut butter as a primary example due to its popularity and a favorite with children. What is not so popular about peanut butter are the ingredients? Especially the ingredient hydrogenated oil. Most people do not know that peanuts are enriched with oil, otherwise known as peanut oil. So as a society, we should be asking why our food industry is depleting the natural oil in peanut butter and replacing it with hydrogenated oil? Through my own research, I have come to understand that hydrogenated oil might be an additive to prevent separation, a preservative or any other reason that might be on a container of peanut butter. We should not accepts these reasons as a replacement for healthy, natural and organic foods. My point being is that we as a society need to start reading food labels and becoming aware of what good and bad ingredients are. Hydrogenated oil is not a natural oil and is not a food that our bodies can use and process correctly, therefore becoming a toxin only to make our bodies sick. Of course we never make the connection.
The importance of our food supply accompanies good health. I encourage everyone to become your own researcher and learn the basics of healthy food. Start researching foods as simple as peanut butter.
