About Whole Kids

Launched in 2005, Whole Kids is Australia’s leading organic food brand providing fun, yummy, healthy snacks for kids. Whole Kids offers a wide range of junk-free, additive-free and allergy-free organic snacks to nourish little one’s tummies.

Founded by husband-and-wife team James and Monica Meldrum, Whole Kids is committed to nurturing healthy kids and a healthy world. They believe in “unjunking” our food and our lives, and that childhood is a precious time that should be protected, nourished and uncompromised.

Whole Kids is recognised as a leader in the organic food industry having received a number of industry awards for product innovation, quality and sustainable business practices. They only use 100% certified organic ingredients, and work hand-in-glove with organic growers and suppliers to ensure the highest quality for their products.

Whole Kids commits 1% of sales to a non-profit organisation called One Percent for Our Kids to help fund and support projects and programmes to improve the health, environment and social equity of children. Whole Kids also created the Healthy Fundraiser for schools and community groups in response to the rising concerns around childhood obesity and unhealthy school fundraising drives (mostly chocolate and donuts!).

Whole Kids became a B Corporation because we are a purpose-driven company committed to operating our business on fundamental responsibilities to people, planet and profit. We believe that enlightened and meaningful business leadership has the power to drive positive change in the way we live, and the B Corp assessment provides a framework for us to measure and monitor our performance against our values and commitments.

The Change We Seek®

Whole Kids was created to provide a healthier world and healthier future for children. They believe every child should have access to healthy, additive-free food for their school lunchboxes and meals. They seek to change the way families and children experience food and, in turn, experience their world.

Whole Kids believes in ‘unjunking’ their lives and that wasteful materialism and consumerism needs to evolve to a more enlightened conscious consumption. Whole Kids seeks a world where businesses contribute positively to a more sustainable, more equitable and more respectful relationship with their customers, stakeholders, communities and environment.
