Kid Friendly Grocery Stores

Thursday, April 13, 2017

My kids have two favorite grocery stores: Albertsons and Fred Meyer. Kid-friendly grocery stores take a lot of the stress off of parents. It's easier to grocery shop when kids are happy and content. Here are some of the reasons these two stores are kid friendly:

  1. Snacks: Albertsons offers a free cookie for kids who stop by their bakery and Fred Meyer offers a free piece of fruit in the produce section. Kids enjoy being fed or snacking as their moms are perusing the aisles.
  2. Car Shopping Carts: Car shopping carts make shopping a little bit more fun for kids. They can pretend they're in a fun police, fireman or bright pink flower power car. It's fun to spin the wheel and pretend they're maneuvering the grocery aisles.
  3. Coloring Contests: My local Albertsons is offering an Easter coloring contest for kids who color a picture. My son enjoyed showing off his artwork. The Albertsons' employees oohed and aahed over his artwork.
  4. Free On-site Child Care: Fred Meyer offers free on-site child care with protective measures in place. Kids sometimes enjoy playing rather than shopping.
