— ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc., has expanded its Kids Club program to all of its 35 stores throughout New York and New Jersey.

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

Specifically, 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, Inc. 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.

“We are proud to announce the expansion of the Kids Club program to all of our stores,” said Brett Wing, president and chief operating officer, 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.”

The Kids Club program is part of ShopRite’s ongoing commitment to providing health and wellness offerings to its customers. ShopRite stores offer an extensive line of natural and organic products, and provides in-store registered dietitians at over 140 ShopRite locations, offering complimentary services including individual and family nutritional counseling, shop-a-long grocery store tours and healthy recipe ideas.

ShopRite Supermarkets stores offering the Kids Club program include: in Orange County: ShopRite of Chester, ShopRite of Dolson Avenue and ShopRite of Wallkill in Middletown, ShopRite of Monroe, ShopRite of Montgomery, ShopRite of Newburgh, ShopRite of Vails Gate and ShopRite of Warwick.
