This fall, The Healthy Shopper is back with some more great organic and eco products. Co-founders Randy Boyer and Andrea Donsky are continuing their mission to make healthy shopping easy one item at a time. The Healthy Shopper Picks, have been helping families make healthier choices for food, vitamins, and personal care products.
The Healthy Shopper Fall 2013 products include items like organic juice boxes, organic ketchup and mustard, gluten-free baking and cake mixes, and many great flavours of the creamiest Greek style yogurt. For personal care items, The Healthy Shopper gives a “thumbs up” to wild oil of oregano as well as a cold and cough remedy for your little ones when the fall sniffles hit.
Chances are, you know of someone who is on a Gluten-Free diet. Maybe that someone is you. Last winter, it was believed that I had a gluten intolerance and went on a strict gluten-free diet. Being told that I needed to eliminate foods that I loved from my diet was a scary thing and I had no idea where to start. The Healthy Shopper Fall 2013 has some great organic and gluten-free products.
Pamela’s Products was started in 1988 and is known for delicious, gluten free foods with a full line of baking mixes, cookies and snack bars. In the Healthy Shopper Fall 2013 you will find a Gluten/Wheat-free:

While I was on my gluten-free diet, the one thing I missed the most was being able to eat cake. With this gluten/wheat-free cake mix from Pamela’s you could have your cake and eat it too!

Recently my 7 year old’s classroom had a contest to see who healthy they could make their lunches. For every healthy item in their lunch bags, they would receive a ballot into a draw. While my daughter doesn’t get drinking boxes for lunch often, she does on occasion and was quick to inform me that they weren’t as healthy as I thought they were. While they were made of 100% fruit juice, they didn’t have the “no sugar added” note attached to it and upon further investigation we realized that these drinking boxes weren’t as healthy as we thought.
The Kiju Organic Drinking Boxes — Pomegranate Cherry and Mango Orange — are made of 100% fruit juice and have no additional sugar added. Now I know that if I send these with my daughter to school, she will get that extra ballot for fun prizes.
