Most Important to Buy Organic: Spring Mix
Unlike plain ol’ iceberg, Spring Mix adds a lovely combo of colors, tastes and textures to your salad bowl — and it’s an excellent source of important nutrients for your body, including powerful antioxidant vitamins A and C (both vital for a healthy immune system) and iron (essential for strong red blood cells and overall energy).
So why choose organic Spring Mix?
- Better for you. Lettuce is #14 on the Environmental Working Group's “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce.” Choosing organic lettuce is a good way to avoid pesticides in your food — that’s especially important for children, whose growing bodies are much more vulnerable than adults’.
- Better flavor. Don’t just take our word for it: more than half of the baby greens sold across the country today are organic. All those taste buds know something!
- Better for the planet. We grow all the baby greens in our organic Spring Mix using sustainable farming methods that protect the environment and help keep chemicals out of our environment — and our food supply.
For Today’s Step, choose organic Spring Mix to star in a beautiful salad you’ll make for your family this week. You’ll find inspiration in our Recipe Center — enjoy!
