Fruits and vegetables are my favorite foods to eat (seriously!) so I’ve always considered myself a healthy eater. But when I became pregnant for the first time, I paid careful attention to everything I ate and began noticing all the unhealthy foods I consumed…artificial sweeteners and chemical laden, overly processed foods topped the list.
Over the past 4 1/2 years I’ve made drastic changes in my eating habits and have taken my growing family along for the ride. Over the past year or so I’ve begun paying attention to the other ways chemicals enter our bodies. I’ve been working to reduce the amount of chemicals we breath (like the cleaning products used in our home) and the amount of chemicals we consume topically (like lotion, shampoo, etc.).
That’s exactly what I’ll be discussing with Seventh Generation and The Motherhood this Thursday on Twitter. They’ll be filling me in (and you if you join us…please do!) on everything we need to know about ingredients, scents, packaging and labels on baby personal care products like shampoo and lotion.
Here are the details…
When: Thursday, December 13, 1-2 p.m. ET
Where: We’ll be on Twitter – follow the #7GenBabyFest hashtag to track the conversation. You can see the details and RSVP via this Twtvite: http://twtvite.com/
