Southcocast Stop & Shop stores are offering free fruit to kids.

When my kids were little, their favorite part of grocery shopping was getting the free piece of cheese from the deli.  I had also heard about free cookies available for little ones at the bakery in the grocery store (although I never took advantage of that one).

I noticed a new sign in the grocery store this week.  Participating Stop & Shop stores in the SouthCoast area have begun to offer free fruit to kids under ten who are shopping with their parents.  Look for this free fruit basket in the produce department next time you are in the store and your kids are hungry for a healthy snack.
