Healthy Kids’ Guide

• By

My journey to living a healthier life does not stop with me. Since having Benjamin, I have been super careful about what I put in or on my son’s body. I always say that he is the one who fuels my love for green juice and all-organic everything, even more.

I always get asked which natural products I use on him and what do I feed him so, here are just a few of things I have used or still use that have great ingredients without all of the crap.

Why all the fuss?

For me, I do not want my son to suffer from conditions and illnesses that, in my opinion, could have been prevented. Everything we eat, drink, and put in or on our bodies has an effect.

And yes, I know you can’t prevent everything but, I’m sure going to try!

The things we use on a daily basis should not lead to disease.

This list has products that I have personally used for my son. Some of them are not completely natural, depending on your definition but, what I look for in products are:

  • no parabens
  • no sulfates
  • no phthalates
  • no formaldehyde
  • no mineral oil
  • organic ingredients
