Why Whole Food?
When it comes to health, nothing seems to quite take the place of what is provided by nature. Studies have proven over and over again that when we get our antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients from the whole food source rather than from a tablet the benefits to our bodies are much more pronounced. Small amounts of certain nutrients, called phytonutrients, are present in whole grains and whole vegetables that seem to work together in benefiting the body when they are consumed in their original whole food form. These benefits are impossible to get by stripping out or extracting certain vitamins and other nutrients from the whole food. By giving your children whole foods throughout the day you are ensuring that they will get the maximum benefit from all the nutrients they are eating and drinking.
