Food Tests Positive for GM in Baby Food

baby-food-health1

By Aymeric Maudous, Founder of Bonjour Baby.

Untested GM, including DNA from antibiotic resistant genes, has been discovered by Greenpeace tests in leading brands of infant formulas. In the past fortnight, Greenpeace and fellow Truefood Network members have taken action across Australia to protest that untested GM products are being used in Australian breastmilk replacement formula for infants.

Some of Australia’s leading infant formula brands have been found to be contaminated with GM, results of independent testing by Greenpeace.  Marketed at babies with reflux, S-26 Soy, one of the contaminated products, is sold by the giant pharma companies Pfizer and Karicare Food Thickener.

Genetically modified products are not recommended for babies to eat.  Neither of the infant food products that are GM-positive carry a warning label. Without their knowledge, parents are currently feeding their babies GM, including DNA from antibiotic resistant marker genes, in ignorance.

Objection to this marketing of untested GM infant formulas without parental consent and knowledge can be initiated by us. There is a federal review of GM labelling laws happening right now. Click here to tell the Health Minister, Nicola Roxon, that it should be mandatory that products that are GM modified be labelled properly, whether they are baby food or anything else.

Testimonials

Last fall, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Bonjour Baby via a giveaway over at the ecoxpo. They had a great display and hosted a giveaway and I won an organic cotton mini bunny. It was perfect timing too, as my little girl was just born. He loves his new cuddly friend. I haven't gone back to use any other resource platform again. Your articles are very high quality and I love your selection of products too. The Bonjour Baby products are truly amazing! I always look forward to your new articles and products. — Millie, Sydney
I would just like to say how much I love Bonjour Baby! They are really fantastic! I recently emailed some about baby care to some other mums in my parenting group and now my whole parenting group are all devoted Bonjour Baby fans! I’m just so glad your website is available, thank you again and keep up the great work! — Amalia, Wakerley QLD
My three-year-old had a seemingly ‘endless’ runny nose with watery eyes, sneezing and chest congestion. Thanks to your article on homeopathy for babies we were able to naturally treat her condition. She is now perfectly fine and we use those natural remedies on ourselves too when the seasons changes. Thank you very much for your quality articles. — Alexandre
Every time my little girl has her bath, after using your products (we have the entire range) our whole family would comment on how our little ones smells! We all love your products, cannot give enough praise for them. The quality of your articles are also a great resource for the new parents wanting to raise a sustainable baby like us! Much love — Sangeeta, Neutral Bay
I just wanted to let you know that our kanoe has basically saved my life and my marriage. It has changed our lives completely. My daughter now takes at least 3 naps a day! Before I had this Kanoe I was never able to get her to sleep except for when she would fall asleep on me nursing (...) I just wish I had known about it earlier. Thank you for making our life a little easier :) — Megan Williams
Thank you Bonjour Baby, you have done a fantastic job. We discovered you from a friend and you have inspired us to live a bit greener once our little one arrived a few months ago. My sister and I are continuously looking for your new articles, as we want what is best for our bubs. So thank you again for all these quality articles. — Magda and Jenny, Alstonville
