Wild Oats New School Year Re-Solutions
Wild Oats re-solutions are ideas from our community on how to make this school year easier and more affordable. For instance, did you start a study group with some families in your neighborhood that rotates to different houses that also serves as a parents night out? Or, maybe you invite your kids to help you come up with fresh and fun healthy recipe ideas for under $10? It’s always great to hear from other parents and learn new ways to do things!

Natural Lunch Packing Essentials
Choose eco-friendly options such as the Seriously Safe Stainless Food Container with Divider that is perfect for lunch boxes. It features a dishwater safe container that makes cleaning a breeze. Plus, it is a non-leaching product, which means no chemicals, no toxins, no plastic taste and it’s resistant to stains and corrosion. To refrigerate school lunches, check out Crocodile Creek Eco Kids Lunch Box Ice Packs. These reusable lunch box ice packs keep food cool and fresh and are non-toxic and BPA free.

Natural Supplements for Focus
The Bach Flower Remedies is a natural stress and emotional relief, safe enough for children. The Bach Flower Remedies for Kids help children deal with everyday fears, daydreaming, self-esteem, worries, depression and self-acceptance. Other great natural supplements to help kids focus are Kroeger Plumbum (means lead) and New Light Kit. These products encourage the body to naturally remove toxins to help improve concentration. Of course, check with your doctor before giving your child any new supplement.

    Bachs Rescue Remedies also has mixtures especially for cats & dogs as well. I’ve not see now kids react but if the animals are any Indication, it works wonders. It’s a natural method of calming them all down

      Hi Dora! I give Bach to my animals as well and the remedies have especially helped my little dog Sophie with her fear. I wish I could show you a picture of her. She weighs about 5 pounds and is a little furry diva! — Chelsea
