where do i find the cheapest place to shop for whole grain and multi grain foods and how do i make sure all of my kids are getting what they need out of the high fiber diet?

my 4year old daughter was born 3 months premature and because of that she has problems pooping and has to be on a high fiber diet and every thing has to be either whole grain or multi-grain she can't have any thing with starch. she can't have that much milk and she has to have alot of viggies. plus i have two other daughters and i need to know if they are getting all they need out of this deit.

  • We only eat whole grain, organic, whole and natural foods. I buy bread at Costco, two loaves of all-natural, whole grain (non enriched) bread for $3.99. We buy a lot of Kashi brand food (snack crackers, cereal, etc.). As far as other things go, you just have to comparison shop, read all ingredient labels, try to buy only whole ingredients (the less processed they are, the better they are for you). If you can't pronounce every ingredient, chances are you don't want to eat it. Pick and choose what you buy that is organic. There are articles all over the web of which foods to choose to buy organic if you are on a budget. You can also buy in bulk on Amazon.com. They have a large health food section online.
