THERE are plenty of healthy items that you can buy for your kids at Costco and potentially save money doing so.
Many know Costco for the savings it provides on products in bulk.
To shop at the store, you need to be a member, which will cost $60 or $120 per year depending on the benefits you want.
For Costco shoppers looking to eat on the healthy side, chef and cookbook author Bobby Parrish has you covered with a few products.
He also describes himself as a grocery shopping expert who educates people on what they put in their bodies so they can thrive while saving money.
Here’s what he shared with his more than 1million Instagram followers a recent video on what you can buy for your kids.
1. Healthy Choice Organic Fudge Bars
Healthy Choice certainly lives up to its name – and it’s no different even with a fudge bar snack.
The snack contains organic non-genetically modified organism (GMO) skim milk, no processed oils and vanilla extract.
But the best part is the low sugar content.
“They only have eight grams of sugar,” Bobby said.
“It’s a great dessert option.”
As far as pricing goes, keep in mind that this could vary by location.
But an 18-count in the Costco Bobby was in had it listed for $11.99.
That’s about 67 cents a bar.
2. Deep Dark Chocolate Avocado ice cream
But more chocolatey dessert items could be good options for your kids.
Just like with the fudge bars, Bobby is focused on low sugar.
The avocado fudge bars contain 12 grams of it – which isn’t high for ice cream.
A four-pack of pints at the store was listed for $13.99, or about $3.50 each.
While it’s a bit pricier, it has Bobby’s approval for high-quality ingredients including organic avocados.
3. Dietz & Watson organic sliced turkey
Bobby is a fan of the value of a 3/9-ounce turkey at Costco.
While the price might seem high at $14.59, he said that the price is 50% less when compared to other grocery stores when it comes to organic turkey.
The item at Costco includes less than 2% of sea salt, water, and organic vinegar.
He describes them as “best-in-class ingredients.”
And he added that the organic brand is “one of the best turkeys on the market for the best-ever price.”
Meanwhile, Bobby said that he noticed that shoppers were buying a Columbus brand of sliced turkey because it’s cheaper.
But he recommends avoiding it because it has soy protein isolate, brown sugar and GMO turkey.
