ShopRite Supermarkets, owner and operator of 35 stores throughout New York and New Jersey, announced that it has expanded its Kids Club program to all of its locations.

The program provides children with a free snack at the supermarket, to give them a reason to get excited about grocery shopping and encourage them to enjoy healthy snacks.

The program provides kids 12 and under with a “Kids Club Card,” which can be obtained at the courtesy desk free of charge, that they can present in the produce department to receive a free piece of fruit such as a banana, clementine, or apple while shopping with a parent or guardian.

The Kids Club program was initially introduced in four ShopRite Supermarkets stores in the Capital Region this past summer, and similar variations of the program are currently available at several dozen stores in ShopRite’s six-state trading area.

In New Jersey, ShopRite of Montague is one of the stores offering Kids Club. Participating stores in Orange County include Chester, Dolson Avenue and Wallkill in Middletown, Monroe, Montgomery, Newburgh, Vails Gate, and Warwick.

“We are proud to announce the expansion of the Kids Club program to all of our stores,” says Brett Wing, president and chief operating officer od ShopRite Supermarkets Inc. “We take great pride in our commitment to providing health and wellness education, encouragement and inspiration within the community, along with the importance of teaching the value of good nutrition habits at an early age. This program is a fun way to educate kids about healthy eating habits.”

ShopRite stores provide in-store registered dietitians at over 140 locations, offering complimentary services including individual and family nutritional counseling, shop-a-long grocery store tours and healthy recipe ideas.
