Organic food on a budget

Hi Lucy

It's always so nice when we receive lovely emails like yours! Glad you're finding us informative.

If you're finding you need to pinpoint specific things to buy organic for your family due to budgeting, I suggest always getting organic animal products like milk and eggs. So much better than non-organic animal things in terms of health, flavour and animal welfare.

On the fruit and vegetables front, delicate fresh produce is more likely to be attacked by insects than hardier ones. So always choose organic delicate crops like lettuce, strawberries and raspberries. Also produce with a high water content needs to be organic, as if it's not, the water could well be laced with petrochemicals. So cucumbers, watermelons and carrots should be prioritised as organic. And I'd choose organic potatoes if possible, as they're not treated with fungicides, usually have tons more vitamins and flavour, and only cost a bit more.

Hope this helps!

Best wishes
