Benefits of Organic Veggies for Moms and Moms To-Be
Cal-Organic Farms showcases healthy food choices on The Balancing Act airing on Lifetime Television®
BAKERSFIELD, CA, April 26, 2017 – Cal-Organic Farms, a Grimmway Farms brand, showcased the benefits of eating organic fruits and vegetables and their particular importance to moms, expectant moms, and their families, during a segment of The Balancing Act airing on Lifetime Television® – America’s premier morning show that brings today’s on-the-go women positive solutions and cutting-edge ideas to help balance and enrich their lives and health.
“Eating healthy is always important, but it’s particularly important during pregnancy,” said Kellen Stailey Martin, Senior Director of Marketing and Merchandising for Cal-Organic. “There are distinct benefits of eating organic vegetables during pregnancy. Moms want to know they’re providing themselves and their growing babies with the best possible nutrients to encourage health and wellness during this critical time.” She noted that carrots, with their alpha, beta carotene and high concentration of antioxidants, can help boost immunity, promote vision development, and provide a healthy snack alternative to manage cravings. Cauliflower, beets, and leafy greens are also full of beneficial vitamins and minerals.
“Our organic fruits and vegetables are grown free of fertilizers, pesticides, and preservatives,” Martin added. “Our products hold USDA certification that upholds both food safety as well as the integrity of our products, so moms can have peace of mind knowing they are feeding their families natural, nutrition-packed vegetables.” Martin said organics are now available at almost all food retailers, as consumer demand has skyrocketed, and production has increased – which makes organics more affordable as well as widely available across the country.
Cal-Organic offers a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, including more than 65 different nutrient-rich offerings. From kid-friendly carrot snack items to Easter egg radishes and rainbow chard, Cal-Organic provides nutritious meal solutions for moms, dads, and kids of all ages.
