Sure, every shopper thinks that they'll find fresh, healthy foods when shopping around the perimeter of the grocery store. But you also know that they'll find a plethora of nutritious foods in those center aisles. From bulk foods like grains and nuts to healthy cereals, canned vegetables, meal starters, nut butters, veggie-loaded sauces and kid-friendly snacks and pouches, the center aisles are bursting with innovation.
