Vito had his first taste of fruit today: an introductory meal of applesauce! I wasn’t able to get pictures, but he enjoyed it, one messy spoonful at a time.

Vito's first fruit: Earth's Best Organic "First Apples"

I bought some organic baby food from Healthy Options last week, which I thought would be a good call given that apples are super healthy but also because apples are among the top foods with the highest pesticide levels. Since reading up on the hazards of pesticides, especially for babies and breastfeeding moms, I’ve come to the conclusion that it pays to go organic, at least for the foods that are on the red eye for harsh chemical content.

Fortunately, there will be many foods that Vito can still eat that do not need to be organic, such as papaya, sweet potato and avocado, which is touted as the “superman” of baby food.

In the meantime, we’re just excited and amused that Vito demolishes all his meals!
