The Best Natural and Organic Kids’ Foods (2011)

For our fourth annual food awards, we wanted to know your family’s top choices in three of the major food groups: grains, dairy, and fruits and veggies. But we just couldn’t leave out snacks—they may not be in the food pyramid, but they’re in our cupboards! Plus, we made sure to include a category for vegetarians and vegans. The organic and natural picks in all of these categories are ones kids love and parents can feel good about.


Whether the option is wheat or glutenfree, families love their whole grains in sandwiches, noodle dishes, and more.
