Regardless of which kind of formula you go with for baby—a cow’s milk-based brand packed with the best blend of protein, carbs and fat; a soy-based blend that’s easier to digest—90 percent of the corn and soy ingredients in formulas are grown from genetically-altered seeds. But Similac, the leading maker of baby formula, now offers a better option: a GMO-free line.

WHAT WE LOVE

  • “Eating clean” can start early—no genetically-modified ingredients means you can feel good about what’s going into baby’s body
  • Features Similac’s same signature OptiGRO blend of DHA, lutein and vitamin E—essential for developing brains, eyes and immune systems

SUMMARY

Natural ingredients naturally make us feel better about giving baby the best start in life, and at $1.16 per ounce, it’s only eight cents more per ounce than regular Similac.

Price: $28
