Should I be concerned about my toddler eating genetically modified foods? -- Catherine
Personally, I feel that the younger the child, the more concerned I am with the consumption of these foods. I am most concerned with feeding genetically modified soy-based products to kids. If soy is in the ingredient list and it does not say "non-GMO," then we try not to use it. I have sincere hormone concerns with these foods. Corn is a rough one to stay away from because so many products have a corn base in them. Genetically modified corn has a quicker rate of sugar delivery into the body though, and can really lead to spikes and dips in little ones' blood sugars.
