Healthy and Organic! At Mighty Oaks, we serve only healthy, organic and natural snacks. We bake our own breads, cook soup and congee from scratch. Why do we choose snacks that are organic even though it is much more expensive? Organic foods contain fewer pesticides, fewer multi-drug resistant bacteria and no added antibiotics, hormones or synthetic additives. They also have a smaller environmental impact than non-organic foods. Research has shown that pesticides — though at debatable levels — are getting into kids’ bodies from conventional food and organic food can lower that pesticide load. Environmental Health Perspectives researchers found that when 23 kids swapped their conventionally grown food for organic versions for five days, their levels of several organophosphate pesticides dropped. Food is fuel for our bodies and brains, and kids are in school to exercise both. This is reason enough for us to serve only the best!
