This Initiative Encourages Healthful Eating Habits Among Children
The Free Fruit For Kids program is now available at two nearby ShopRite locations.
Getting your children to eat healthfully can be a consistent challenge, especially when cookies, cakes and sugary sodas surround them at seemingly every turn.
But good habits start with small steps. Case in point: ShopRite recently announced the expansion of its Free Fruit For Kids program to 54 additional stores—two of which are in Delaware.
The ShopRite of Brandywine in Wilmington and ShopRite of Four Seasons in Newark are currently participating in the popular program, in which kids 12 and under receive a free banana, clementine or other seasonal fruit while shopping with a parent or guardian.
Select ShopRite locations also offer additional free or low-cost programs for children, such as the Student Shopper Program (tours run by the supermarket's registered dietitians), Hands on Healthy Kids (an interactive in-store workshop that teaches children about nutrition), and age-appropriate cooking classes and culinary workshops taught by professional chefs and registered dietitians.
