Award-winning organic snacks brand Whole Kids is introducing seven new products to its range exclusively in Woolworths stores around the country.

Whole Kids offers a variety of snacks and foods that contain no artificial colours, flavours and preservatives and are ethically and sustainably sourced.

Whole Kids founder Monica Meldrum said she is passionate about creating nutritious snacks that children love, and parents can feel good about.

“Our mission is to make it easier for children to be healthier and happier. We’re excited to expand our offering into Woolworths and hope our presence in stores will help busy parents make better choices for their kids,” said Meldrum.
