Genius Tesco!

As I have said before I am not blogging for money. I just want to blog about things that make me smile, so hopefully you can enjoy the read without having a brand shoved into your face. (Not that being paid by brands is a bad thing, but I can’t see Tesco asking little old me to write something for them). I am still a newby blogger and I’m not sure I would even know where to start with writing a whole review for something…

Not that anyone has asked me yet…


Our local Tesco is now giving  away free fruit at the door for kids! I’m not sure if all stores are doing this yet or how long they have been doing it for, but how great is that! I have a 2yr old and a 5yr old who I’m sorry to say think that going to do a big shop, means free pick and mix. We did try not to get into this habit, and with my first I rembember being much more organised about snacks. We would always have something heathly, occasionally even organic, in the changing bag. Nowadays it is more about getting out the house with matching shoes and appropriate clothing. My kids do still snack quite well on cheese, raisens, breadsticks and other things. I am afraid to say though that snackbars and buiscuits are the usual, and only thing, that is kicking around in the bottom of our changing bag these days.
My eldest, who has been compleatly spoilt with food, will ask for olives over sweets everytime! She has rather expensive taste for a nearly 6yr old. Brie, muscles, giant prawns and rare breed beef are amoung her top choices of foods, would you believe it! Our other little lady seems to be following suit. Which I am very happy with, but olives from the deli counter usually cost us a small fortune every time we enter anywhere like Tesco.
The younger girl though is the fruitaholic of the family, so walking into Tesco and having her pick of fruit as soon as she gets through the door is brilliant. Our eldest also loves fruit so with any luck we will be breaking away from the deli in no time!

I know, I know… it’s a bit of a con! What the sign should say is “Quiet kids make parents spend more”! But in all honesty if I can hear myself think for the first 15 minutes in the shop. I am more likely to remember what I actually went in for and not have to go down every single isle, just incase I have forgotten something. 

So Ha!

  1. Our supermarkets let us take fruit for our kids. Although I would have done it anyway to ensure that my shopping experience went well!!! Haha. It makes my boy love to go to the store. There are also free cookies/biscuits.

  2. I love this idea, though haven’t seen it in person yet. My children would certainly benefit from a bit of distraction in fruit form! Is there a compost bin somewhere in the shop for all the apple cores and orange peel? Surely it’s only a matter of time before the banana-skin-in-aisle-seven incident hits the media… πŸ˜‰

  3. I haven’t taken fruit for the girls in the supermarket haha! Thanks for linking to the #THAT FRIDAY LINKY come back next week please
