    Shouldn’t you be mentioning in this recipe — and ALL your website’s recipes — that the apples should be organically grown? Especially since this is for children. I assume you know that apples, peaches, nectarines, strawberries, and grapes are the fruits with the highest pesticide residues and should not be eaten unless they are organically grown. Are you familiar with the Environmental Working Group’s annual study (and report) of pesticide residues on produce? (They found residues from 15 different pesticides on ONE grape.)
