A recent letter in the Organic NZ magazine alerted me to the fact that aspartame makes a great ant killer!
Not too much of a concern I thought until I realised that aspartame is actually common ingredients in many food items (not just diet drinks and low-calorie items).
I started to look around and wow - peppermints, chewing gum - all contain aspartame (950) or similar artifical sweeteners.
Not only that my daughter had a cough .... and do you think I could find a cough medicine in the chemists that didn't contain artifical sweetener.
It was enough to send me running for the nearest health shop (or sanctuary I should call it) where I found joy in a the form of a pottle of Annies peppermints (made with xyitol) and cough medicine sweetened with organic apple juice.
Pure bliss, followed by an uninterrrupted nights' sleep!
I have just came across two fabulous books that look like a "must have" for any organic mum who can knit, sew or felt.
Nature Babies: Natural Knits and Organic Crafts for Moms, Babies, and a Better World - from Amazon.com. These craft ideas incorporate the reduce, reuse, recycle principle. Love the sound of that.
Natural Knits for Babies and Moms: Beautiful Designs Using Organic Yarns - from Amazon.com. Yum!
Choice.com.au have just launched a new Food & Kids section which has a great review on kids' cereals. Worth checking out because after all, breakfast is a most important start to your child's day.
P.S. My daughter gets very bored with cereals but just loves her Gorilla Munch!
