  46. I buy all organic all the time for my son (15 months)...and for my fiancé & myself when finances allow for a bit of wiggle room. More often than not, our grocery cart (typically at Whole Foods!) is full of organics: we ensure that all of our meat, eggs, fruits/veggies and dairy products are organic...beyond that, it's whatever we can budget for. Although some things come with some level of "sticker shock" when shopping, we've accepted that health and wellness are far more inexpensive to maintain than a chronic illness is to treat down the road. ;)
