    Yes it’s awesome! Even my picky eater will grab a banana from time to time. I love my Frys!

      Agreed! We love it! Last time the fruit stand was empty and we found the produce person who filled it right back up for us! We like to get the bananas too! It is funny how a little thing like a free apple or banana can make such a difference. Heart this!

      Yes! That is so kind and thoughtful of you to tell them that you appreciate it – I am going to follow your lead and tell Fry’s too! What a great idea! You must be awesome at paying it forward!

    I love that frys starting doing this! I wish all stores did though 🙁
    My kids drive me crazy wanting to eat fruit and veggies before I pay

      I do too! The other day our Fry’s had Cuties – those little oranges out! My son was so happy!

    My kids love to munch as we shop. My son is obsessed with clementines! He never turns one down!

      So sweet! Our neighbors across the street share your son’s obsession with Clementine’s – and they always share 🙂 Lucky, lucky us! And I know – snacking while shopping makes everything so much better. We heart Fry’s and adore their Free Fruit for Kids.

    I love this idea. Now that both my kids are in school, I typically shop without them during school hours. But, if they were with me I would definitely let my children enjoy a piece of fruit from the Fry’s Fruit for Kids stand!

    Yes, my kids love going to Frys. In addition to the healthier option, it also allow kids to learn about various fruits. For example, my husband and I don’t care for granny smith apples…but my son always pick that over the typical red apples.

    Didn’t know about the free fruit at Fry’s! Thanks for the info!

      For sure! It is so fun for the kids to choose their own piece of fruit. Mine usually goes for an apple!

    I make every effort to not take my 2.5 year old grocery shopping. In the rare case I have no choice, Fry’s fruit stand eases my and my fellow patrons pain. A golden banana, while high in potassium, also buys me about 10 minutes of golden silence to get the necessities and get the hell out.

    Yes! I love this idea! I have a card that allows my daughter to get a banana or apple at Albertans and it keeps her entertained.

    Albertsons has been doing free fruit for kids for a long time now! I was pleased to see Frys getting on board as well.
