After having a baby last year, my goal for this new year is to get back into shape. To exercise more, to eat better, and treat myself better. It’s not just about me, however. I want the rest of my family to follow along this journey with me. I’m calling it our 2018 Family Care Checklist. Little things we can check off and remember to do every day that hopefully add up to a bigger accomplishment. That also includes our pets and he has his own Daily Dog Care Checklist. The first step with them is to get our pup on the right food, and I’ve found that with Purina® Beneful® at Meijer.
Crying baby and no time to run to the store? Meijer makes it easier than ever to shop for all your grocery needs online. With Curbside, you add items to your cart on the Meijer site then indicate when you want to pick them up at the store with a quick run through the curbside lane. Shipt lets you order your groceries online and have them delivered to your home. Be sure to check if your local Meijer offers these services!
Unfortunately, Curbside and Shipt aren’t in every Meijer store and my particular store is one that hasn’t implemented this technology yet. I’m trying to exercise more, though, remember? So it’s probably better this way for now. However, I’m definitely looking forward to utilizing this feature in the future. So while at Meijer, we picked up both a 15.5 lb bag of Purina Beneful Healthy Weight With Real Chicken Dog Food as well as a 12.5 lb bag of Purina Beneful Grain Free With Real Farm-Raised Chicken Adult Dry Dog Food. They were both easy to find in the pet food aisle.
For my little dog, these two bags will last him awhile. It’s all a part of our Family Care Checklist.
Family Care Checklist 2018, The Basics
1. Eat Better – Read labels and be more mindful of what we put in our bodies. That goes for our pets, too. Be sure to check your pet food. In fact, if you were to look at the ingredients list in most dog foods, you would find that meat flavor comes before real meat. Not in Purina Beneful, however. That’s your reality check.
I love knowing that what I’m giving our dog is full of real ingredients with real meat, at the right price. Because what’s good for him, is also an inspiration for us.
2. Take care of each other – Parents, siblings, and pets alike. Since dog care is part of family care, for those daily tasks I’ve made an easy to follow Daily Dog Care Checklist Free Printable for kids.

Simply download and mark off the daily dog care checklist as you go along for the week.
There’s also a place for a grocery list of supplies needed. Like household chores, only with belly rubs, it’s a great reminder that taking care of our pets is not just a one time thing that you can forget about tomorrow. And neither is taking care of ourselves.
3. Feel better – Yet another reason why having a dog in the family is important. He’s a great excuse to go for walks. More exercise and time spent outside. More time together, simply laughing and having fun. Maybe even less time spent in a grocery store, thanks to all the great new ways we have to shop at Meijer.
A new year can be the start to a better year. That means more exercise, more time outside, more fun experiences, making better choices, and better food options. Our pets are a wonderful excuse for more walks, more running around the yard, even exercise while giving the dog a bath. And they deserve better nutrition, too.
