Gateway, Basement, Golden Centre, 188 des Voeux Rd Central, 2545 0338, (next to Sheung Wan MTR). This is a bulk buy discount place where it's hard to believe you could get through the quantity before it goes off, but I guess it depends on the "size" of your family and how many oreos they eat. Stock up here on US Pampers and Huggies. These are more expensive than those in Parknshop but they are manufactured in the US rather than China and tend to have greater absorbency.

Rice is sold everywhere, unsurprisingly, with local supermarkets stocking a wide variety of wild and brown grains. However, you can take things one step further and order from the Japanese supplier, Tawaraya HK(https://www.wakka.com.hk/tawaraya/weborder.aspx). They import Japanese brown rice, radiation free from reputable farms, and refine it to your liking so it tastes very fresh. You can buy brown, 50% refined, 70% refined, and white. 50% - 70% refined is a little easier on the tummy compared to brown rice yet a lot of the nutrients are still intact. Delivery takes 2-3 days and it's $20 per delivery. COD or you can wire money too. Not everything is in English so you may need to enlist a Japanese friend to help you!
