Organic or Not: Can You Taste the Difference?
There are so many options at the supermarket these days—organic, non-GMO, all-natural, conventional. What does is all mean? Organic food is produced without synthetic pesticides and is usually more energy efficient than its conventional counterpart. As a rule, organic food is also less chemically processed than non-organic food. But can you taste the difference? Find out by challenging your kids' taste buds to a taste experiment to see if he can tell which foods are organic and which are not.
What You Need:
- Organic fruit, bread, cookies, and juice
- Conventional (non-organic) fruit, bread, cookies, and juice (make sure they're the same as the organic foods—the only difference between the two should be that one is organic and one is not)
