Whole Foods Market is ready to share ideas for a healthy school year with a Health Starts Here (HSH) Back to School event that showcases tastes of good-for-you foods, ideas for a healthy school lunch box, recipes and more.

Completed report cards can be submitted to win a prize.

Whole Foods Market’s Health Starts Here program provides healthy eating education to empower people to make the best health-supportive, delicious food choices. HSH focuses on four pillars of healthy eating: real foods that are whole, fresh, natural, organic, local, seasonal and unprocessed; plant based foods; healthy fats from plant sources such as nuts, seeds and avocados; and nutrient dense foods.
