Back-to-School Essentials: Guide to Family-Friendly Regeneratively-Sourced Products
Here is our guide for family-friendly, regeneratively sourced products — stock up for you and your family this fall!
School is back in session, which means more packed lunches, on-the-go days, and crisp after-school activities. What better way to set our little ones up for success than nourishing them with products made from regeneratively grown materials? Not only will they receive the nutritional benefits of the food, but they will also learn from the example of their parents choosing products that help restore (rather than further deplete) the land. Here are some Land to Market products — many of which you can find at your local grocery store — that we recommend stocking up on this fall.
Applegate Do Good Dog: These delicious hot dogs are made from beef raised on verified regenerative grasslands. Uncured and fully cooked, you can chop these up for a delicious snack or to-go lunch. With seven grams of pure protein per dog, this convenient protein will satisfy the whole family.
Cheddie’s White Cheddar: Looking for a healthier replacement for Cheese-Its or Goldfish? Look no further than Cheddie’s White Cheddar crackers! Delicious and full of protein from regeneratively farmed cheese, these make a great on-the-go lunch addition. They’re so good that kids won’t miss the ultra-processed alternatives.
Alexandre Whole Milk Yogurt: This grass-fed yogurt comes from cows raised on regenerative farms. They used VAT pasteurization – low and slow – to preserve the delicious flavor of this nutrient-rich yogurt with the cream on top. Also, they do not process the milkfat levels, so you and your family get the nourishing milkfat levels that nature provides. We love making parfaits for kids with this yogurt, topping with fruit, nuts, and a drizzle of honey.
Kalona Supernatural Chocolate Milk: This organic whole chocolate milk comes from grass-fed cows on small family farms for a sweet treat that’s helping restore the land. This decadent blend of cocoa and whole milk (sweetened with organic, Fair Trade cane sugar) is beloved by kids and adults alike. Low-temp pasteurized and non-homogenized milk in its most natural state, made to share with the people you love.
Alec’s Ice Cream Honey Blueberry Lavender: This flavor is mind-blowingly velvety and refreshing — everything you want from an ice cream and more. Made with Alexandre Family Farm’s Milk. With real blueberries, lavender notes, and laces of honey throughout, this is the perfect elevated treat to share with the whole family.
FOND Regenerative Chicken Bone Broth Turmeric and Black Pepper: This incredibly nourishing, flavorful broth is shelf-stable until you open it, so you can send your kid to school with a jar to heat up during lunch. It’s also great for simple week-night dinners, like making rice in bone broth for a flavorful boost or using as a soup base. This chicken with turmeric flavor is great for any recipe that calls for oregano, cream, and garlic.
Serenity Kids Baby Food Pouches - Beef & Bison Flavors: Made with regenerative meat and farm-to-high-chair organic veggies, this is the most nutrient-dense baby food out there. These packages are so convenient to throw in your purse for whenever your littlest ones need a flavorful, nourishing meal.
Summer Solace Baby Soft Family Balm: Made with tallow from regeneratively raised Northern California Cattle, this all-purpose balm is readily absorbable by the skin and rich in fat-soluble vitamins and minerals A, D, K, E and B12. Safe for all skin types (including babies, children, and adults), this is great to smooth on hands, face, body, and hair — especially during the drier fall months.
EILEEN FISHER Merino Jersey Turtleneck Top in Regenerative Wool: A breathable, classic turtleneck, this is perfect for regenerative mamas who need something chic to throw on for outings. This cozy wardrobe staple can be worn all fall and winter long AND pairs well with high-waisted pants for an elongated look. Learn more about EF’s Regenerative Sourcing Program here.
