Many parents find bringing their children grocery shopping as troublesome. But why not turn the chore into an opportunity to bond with your kids?
Choose kid friendly store where they have specialized buggies and carts. This way, you don’t waste yout time chasing your kids around, and focus more on the shopping.
Keep your kids comfortable and make sure that they’re not hungry or cranky. If the kids re not in a good mood, might as well not go shopping. Much easier to eat leftovers or get a take-out then take cranky kids out.
Schedule your grocery trips so you avoid the rush hour and days where a lot of people are buying their stuff. It is better to do your shopping at a more leisurely pace, not to mention when the aisles are free and the lines at the checkout counters are short or even nonexistent.
Get kids involved. Let them tick the items off your list. Or you can let them pick items to get from your list. It can also be a good chance to teach your kids about health and nutrition, math, and other practical lessons you can think of.
