The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) -- a professional organization of more than 60,000 pediatricians -- has released a new report finding no evidence that organic foods provide nutritional benefits that children cannot get from conventionally grown foods.
Although the report does say organic foods have lower pesticide levels, it concludes parents should be focused on feeding their kids a healthy diet, organic or not.
"What's most important is that children eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat or fat-free dairy products, whether those are conventional or organic foods. This type of diet has proven health benefits," Janet Silverstein, co-author of the report and a member of the AAP's committee on nutrition, said in a statement.
