FEBRUARY’S PRODUCT OF THE MONTH
Every month, we feature a new product that showed some of the most impressive results in our testing. As we grow our database of tested products by adding 50 new products each month, we receive a variety of results. The goal of our Product of the Month feature is to highlight a farm or company that proves their commitment to clean and sustainable practices and ingredient use. We aim to give consumers confidence in their food choices with the help of our Product of the Month.
Our Product of the Month for February is Sunny Days Snack Bars by Earth’s Best
Finding the right snacks for your baby can be extremely difficult. Prices are high, ingredient lists are long, and you never know if your child will actually like it! There are tons of brands in the consumer market that market their products to children, but provide unsafe sustainability standards. To help our community find the best of the best when it comes to snacks for children, we tested 8 different popular baby snacks recommended by local New York parents. Earth’s Best Sunny Days Snack Bars came back with the cleanest results.
Earth’s Best sources all their produce from Burch Farms, located in North Carolina. They are a certified organic farm, that do not use synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Earth’s Best prides themselves for providing safe, nourishing foods made with organic ingredients that do not contain GMOs. Although it came back with a higher contamination rate then we would prefer to see in baby food items, compared to the others, it is one of the safer choices for children. We will be conducting more testing to find a cleaner and safer option!
According to our evaluation report, we rated Sunny Days Snack Bars a 15 on our Concern Index. Some of the 420 pesticides tested for were detected in our evaluations performed by our partner labs. What are some of your favorite snacks you feed your kids that you want to see tested?
