We believe at Bellota Baby in purity and the use of chemical free organic baby products for your baby inside and out. Which is why we have teamed up with Trees, Bees and Marshmallows to talk about the virtues of nourishing and natural baby foods and skin products.
What you feed your tiny person in the first few years directly affects not just growth but energy levels, moods, resilience to disease and the ability to concentrate.
A recent survey revealed 1/4 children now suffer from eczema and 1/6 from allergies. Much of this is attributed to diet and the daily household products we use on and around our babies and toddlers.
A healthy immune system comes from a healthy, wholesome, balanced diet and with 3,500+ chemicals now being added to the food we eat its seems more important than ever to try and strong-arm our little ones against this daily bombardment.
There is no question that there is a huge nutritional difference between whole foods and proceed products, an example being the word ' enriched' means more than a dozen nutrients have been destroyed during processing and a few synthetic ones have been used to replace this, more often than not in unnatural proportions. Adding to your baby's daily toxic load.
Organic products and other natural un-tampered with ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilisers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms or ionizing radiation and contain no artificial colours or ingredients.
When we buy organic and suitable wholefoods and chemical free products and raise our babies and toddlers on good quality toxic free produce from the beginning we are giving them a valuable gift and voting for the best for them, the soil, our waters and out planet.
The moral of the story is we need to not just focus on what we ARE feeding our baby and toddlers but what we are NOT putting into our children which may bombard and burden their tiny immune systems & bodies. Likewise, what we put on their bodies is equally as important..

The ingredients found in most skincare is similar to the ingredients found in non-organic, processed food.
Natural, organic, plant based skincare like organic food is free from pesticides, synthetic fertilisers, synthetic oils, preservatives and contains no artificial ingredients.
In this modern society our babies’ fragile bodies are bombarded with toxins, chemicals, sugars, and ‘bad’ fats. We consume all these daily in the food we eat, the air we breathe and the products we use. All these factors contribute to general overall health and future health.
Our children's skin is their largest organ and the first form of defence. At one year a baby's immune system still isn't fully formed. The immune system grows and strengthens with time, so from the very start we need to avoid substances that weaken their body's and try to eliminate dangers that are in our control.
The majority of skincare and alarmingly baby skincare on the market is packed full of synthetic artificial ingredients. Almost without exception, most of these artificial substances derive from a petroleum base. Yes, petroleum - the same substance that is used to make the common motor car oil.
These artificial ingredients create a film on the skin, block our pores, stops our skin from being able to breath.
Our bodies are amazing this is true, they are designed to break down chemical substances through fluid excretions. However, If we are blocking our skin by using these artificial substances, how are we allowing our babies and toddler's bodies to work effectively?
Great skin starts on the inside. The skincare that we use should enhance, balance and protect our skin. By making the right choices with your food, hand in hand with our skincare choices, you are helping prevent health concerns and allowing your body to work to its optimum. Give your baby the very best start so they can thrive.
We believe you shouldn't put anything on your skin, that you wouldn't put into your body. Babies put everything into their mouths, by choosing natural plant based skincare it is as important as choosing an all natural diet. After all, our bodie's absorb 60% of what we put on our skin. Keep it simple.
