The Cool Moms (me especially) always check EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database before reviewing a product to make sure the ingredients meet a persnickety mom’s health and safety needs. Now we’re excited to announce that EWG is going further than Skin Deep–straight into our bellies and grocery carts.
Good Food on a Tight Budget is a free and easy resource for planning healthful, cost-effective meals for your family while avoiding nasty pesticides and artificial ingredients. The Environmental Working Group has compiled tons of research to determine the most nutritious, economical and least polluted foods. You can search by food group, get tips on eating well and buying safely, and even track prices.
Of course, take some of it with a grain of salt: you’ll find mashed avocado, guava, raspberries and blackberries are not “recommended” because of the cost.
We know many of our readers are already seriously food-savvy, but we thought it was worth mentioning another way to stay on top of the best foods for your family. I’ll warn you now: cupcakes are not on the list. –Delilah
