Every year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) puts together a new list of which items have the highest levels of pesticides and those which are considered safer for you and your family.

Here is the most recent list that you may want to consider carrying with you during your next stop to the grocery store. Whenever possible, I suggest buying everything organic but if budget is an issue, these lists will help.

The CLEAN 15 have less pesticide and would be okay to buy conventional while the DIRTY DOZEN are those with the highest amount of pesticides and should ALWAYS be purchased organic.
