If you remember from my post last year I mentioned that the Healthy Shopper usually picks some highlights products twice a year. The latest picks for organic foods for Spring 2014 are finally here. All the products have been picked for some healthy alternatives to popular foods that my not be as healthy. The Healthy Shopper encourage Canadians to avoid the "Scary 7" ingredients which are High-fructose corn syrup, Trans fats, MSG, Artificial sweeteners, Artificial colours, Artificial flavours and Preservatives. I feel safe to use any of the picks from the Healthy Shopper for my family. :)
