Pesticide Hacks 1. Wash and peel non-organic vegetables where possible and remove the outer leaves of lettuce and cabbage. 2. Scrub all vegetables that you don’t peel under running water using a vegetable brush. 3. Soak vegetables like broccoli, lettuce and spinach in water mixed with vinegar for 15-20min. Rinse after draining. 4. Don’t give your child bruised vegetables as these are likely to harbour more pesticides. 5. It’s best to rotate vegetables to ensure that there won’t be a daily build-up of the same types of pesticides in your child’s body. 6. Vegetables that are not grown locally require after-harvest pesticides and waxes to help them survive the trip. Look for locally grown produce and try eat veggies that are in season. Look out for chemical/spray free options. If you are looking for guidance, visit www.seasonalfoodguide.com and choose your region.
