    Whole Foods dubs itself "America's Healthiest Grocery Store." But, this grocery chain that specializes in organic fare is also known as a pricey place to shop for food. And for parents trying to raise a family and grow their wealth at the same time, groceries can take a huge bite out of their budgets.

    If you're looking to save money on food, you probably don't want to do all of your shopping at Whole Foods. However, the company has made recent moves to make shopping at the upscale grocer more affordable.

    For example, earlier this year, Whole Foods began opening 365 by Whole Foods Market stores, which were "designed around affordability and convenience," said co-founder John Mackey in a press release. "Through lower capital and operating costs, we are able to offer great values to our customers, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive."
