As a parent, I know how hard it is to get out the door on school mornings – much less get some decent food in kids’ bellies before rushing out.

You know those TV families who sit down to a hearty, home-cooked breakfast before school? Spoiler alert: That hardly happens in the real world — and I’m not going to feel guilty about it.

Whether you make breakfast from scratch or grab something to heat-n-eat, you can give yourself and your kids a better starting point when you shop with us. That’s because everything meets our standards for no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives along with no hydrogenated fats or high fructose corn syrup. Yep, even that cereal bar or toaster pastry you toss your kid’s way as they run out the door.

You won’t find standards like these anywhere else. No label reading required.

Check out what you might find in your favorite breakfast foods if not from Whole Foods Market.
