We teach our children to look both ways before they cross the street, insist they wear seat belts and know if we drive using good judgment, we are less likely to have a problem. Logically, the same could be said about food. So why would we feed our kids poisonous food? Below, the “Pesticide Residue Alert”. Just like a yellow traffic sign warns us to be cautious–potential danger ahead–while driving, these “signs” give us options when we shop for our fruits and vegetables.
