Organic food for babies is safe and good and has nothing to do with affecting your baby's ability to fight infection. Also most organic baby foods do not contain added salt and preservatives which is also good for your baby.

Organic food means food grown without pesticides.

Its a bit of a marketing scam - if you wash the fruit and vegetables any tiny amount of residual pesticide will be off them too.

The nutrient quality is the same.

Organic food will however cost a lot more as its fertilised with natrual things like cow and chicken poo which is less effective than commercial fertilisers, much more must be grown with a lot more sacrificed to pests as no pesticides are used.
