Whitney Belprez, a mom to a 19 month old says, “I think every parent wants to give their children the best start in life and for me, choosing organic is part of that. By teaching kids to eat healthy, fresh, whole foods we are giving them the gift of food health.”
Organic often gets a repuation for being “expensive” and parents feel that they are “priced-out” of the organic food revolution. However, that myth can be conquered with meal planning, sale shopping and saved time. Belprez continues, “We make sacrifices other places, but not when it comes to what food we put in our bodies.” Like many moms, she is always looking for healthy, easy and affordable ways to feed her family organically.
Produce, meat and cheese are the most important components of our diets that are best to keep organic. We are very lucky to have options in Tampa for organic products. Target, Publix, Fresh Market and Whole Foods offer organic products. However, busy families want great prices and convenience-trips to these big box stores can be quiet an outing with little ones in the cart. So what are your other options in Tampa for organic products?
