mom cringingDo you cringe thinking about the ingredients in your family’s favorite packaged foods?

With all the gory ingredients that food sleuths like Food Babe and Lisa Leake from 100 Days of Real Food are uncovering, it’s hard not to wonder what’s lurking in your pantry?

I know you want your babies to grow up healthy, smart and strong. REAL food is the key. Food fuels your kids’ bodies and creates the cells that make up their little brains, hearts, bones and muscles. That’s why, NOW is the time for us to stop ignoring the pang in our stomachs that ache every time we pack a school lunch or fill up the grocery cart.

Check out the blog post. Then, come back to tell me which ingredients you’ve found lurking in your pantry? This week, I found some zinc oxide. Sounds harmless but is it really?
