Nutrition is a key component of good health. But if your loved one has nutritional challenges, like swallowing and chewing difficulties or specific caloric needs, finding healthy food and beverages can be difficult. At Carewell, we’ve established strong relationships with manufacturers of healthy, organic foods to assist family caregivers. Here, we highlight some of our favorite organic nutrition products, including their key benefits and features.

What Is Organic Food?

Organic food is farmed and/or produced under strict guidelines established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These methods aim to improve soil and water quality, reduce pollution, and keep food as healthy as possible. 

Generally speaking, organic foods:

  • Don’t use pesticides

  • Don’t contain hormones or antibiotics

  • Don’t use genetic engineering

The easiest way to tell if a food or drink is organic is to check for the official USDA Organic Seal. All products certified 95% or more organic have this distinction.

You can feel good about serving your loved one organic foods and beverages with whole ingredients and minimal additives.
