Woolworths Fresh Food Kids Discovery Tour

My children and I went on a fun discovery tour of fruits and veg at our local supermarket.

While I usually go to great lengths to avoid taking my two children to the supermarket, this week we ventured there with a purpose other than shopping.

Our playgroup leaders organised a FREE Woolworths Fresh Food Kids Discovery Tour, which was not something I had ever taken part in or had even heard of, to be honest!

So, what does it involve? We arrived and were greeted by our friendly ‘tour guide’ Mel. I wasn’t actually sure what to expect, but it wasn’t a tour as such, but more of a ‘tour’ of fresh fruit and vegetables for the kids….and us adults too.

We were led to a table with a display of the most delicious selection of fruits and vegetables - much nicer looking than the wilted carrots in my fridge. The kids were all given a cardboard hat to wear and then the activities began!

There are different activities for various age groups. As our playgroup is mostly toddlers and kindy kids, the activities were simple, age-appropriate and designed to get the children thinking about fruits and vegetables.

We did an activity that involved guessing which veggies were in the bag, and then we headed off around the fruit and veg section to answer some questions and inspect some produce they weren’t all that familiar with.

Next, out came the fruit and vegetable platter. I’m not great with eating my fruits and veg, but seriously, if someone made me this platter every day, all I would eat would be fruit and veg. It was colourful, fresh, delicious and totally tempting.

All the children were given a cup to make a ‘rainbow cup’ and the adults given a plate to pile up from the platter. The kids were encouraged to fill their cups with as much colour as possible, and try the produce they possibly hadn’t eaten before. It was fantastic to see the kids getting involved and trying different fruits and veg, as sometimes they tend to try new things if they see their peers doing the same.

After polishing off the majority of the platter, the kids were given a little reusable bag to take home, plus pick a piece of fruit or two. The bag also contained a sticker and activity book, quiz cards and a couple of leaflets.

And then we were on our way, and I managed to leave the supermarket without buying anything or one of my children bolting, which is a first.

My eldest daughter, at almost four years old, was quite engaged with the tour and activities, but my youngest at 21 months, was not too bothered. It's definitely an activity I would recommend for kids in kindy and above, although the younger ones will probably love eating the fruit and veg!

The Woolworths Fresh Food Kids Tour is available to playgroups and mums groups, school groups and other groups and you can make a booking here. The kids have some good fun with their friends and exploring different fruits and veg, and I got some handy ideas for their lunchboxes!
