Every year the Environmental Working Group comes out with new guidelines to help make it easier for families to avoid extra pesticides in fruits and vegetables. Because farming practices and regulations change every year, so do the guidelines. It’s important to keep with these so that you can make the best informed choices when it comes to feeding your family.
Named the ‘Dirty Dozen’ (avoid) and the ‘Clean 15’ (OK) they provide a handy list for fruits and veggies to avoid if not organic, and a list with fruits and veggies that are OK with lower amounts of pesticides.
Here’s the link to the Dirty Dozen: Find It Here

Hopefully these handy lists will make it easier for your family to make healthier and informed choices!
