Many moms are becoming more health conscious and like to offer their kids healthy alternatives for lunch and snacks. Sometimes this can be a real challenge in this world of fast food, and foods that are over-processed with too many chemicals. Whole Foods Market provides an array of organic, natural foods that can help moms send their kids back to school with confidence in what they're eating. They offer so many delicious healthy options for meals and snacks alike.
I went to our local Whole Foods Market, in search of some yummy snacks for Ike that are handy and healthy. I like to make little snack bags to carry in the car and his backpack so that whether he needs something with his lunch or if we're on the go - he can always reach for something tasty and nutritious.

About the Whole Foods Market Store we Visited:
We found ample parking, a clean and well-lit store. Aisles are marked well and it was easy to find what we needed. We noticed many items on sale, a fabulous hot food bar, bakery and deli departments. They had miniature shopping carts for kids and staff was helpful and friendly. We are very impressed with the Whole Foods Palatine IL store!
More info on some of the snacks we found at Whole Foods & Featured in the video:
- Annie's Organic Pretzel Bunnies - Certified organic, made with wheat flour - they're so delicious and cute!
- Annie's Organic Spelt Pretzel Bunnies - Also cute & tasty with a blend of organic spelt & wheat flour for nutty flavor.
- EnviroKidz Gorilla Munch Cereal - naturally sweet & crunchy. We like it for breakfast and to just eat dry as a snack!
- Horizon Organic Colby Cheese Sticks - One of the best cheese sticks I've tasted. Wonderful texture and so flavorful. Love them!
