    I prefer to use natural alternative holistic remedies to conventional treatments especially when it comes to my kids. My family is just getting over a virus that is going around and last week I was desperate to find something, anything, to alleviate my daughter's symptoms, particularly her cough. I found myself at a local drug store, staring at a shelf full of over-the-counter children's medications. Most of these drugs contain artificial flavors, artificial colors and sweeteners. One box that I looked at actually contained aspartame as a listed ingredient! Eyes blurred from reading all of the small print ingredients that I couldn't pronounce, I ended up going home empty-handed.

    Seems like everyone has a different version of what’s healthy these days. For some, it just means skipping that second burger at the nearest fast food restaurant. For another, it’s eating strictly vegetarian or organic. For others, it’s a the traditional hunter/gatherer meal. For Jennifer, “healthy” generally means following the good ol’ food pyramid with a de-emphasis on the dairy. Follow Jennifer she tells you what she feeds her kids for dinner. Then you tell Babyminding if it’s healthy according to your standards.

    You may think common products like ketchup and bubble bath are similar regardless of the brand - like comparing apples to apples right?  Unfortunately this is not the case with many of the products on the market today.  As a result, Babyminding offers this series of articles that compare common family products that are used every day. Each article provides the popular brand's ingredients up against the "natural" or organic version's.  You be the judge (if you dare); which one is better for your family?
