No Free fruit at Woolies and Free Bananas at Coles?

Over the last week, have been to a few Coles and Woolies in metro WA and none have free fruit for kids anymore? The whole stand is gone not just empty. Heard a Mum this morning at Woolies saying the same thing. Is the promotion over?

    Cyclones = bad weather = fruit prices go up = no freebies to give away?

    In my dreams the anti-discrimination board found it unlawful pandering.

    My Coles stopped doing it ages ago, but Woolworths still does it.

  •  

    No way, they stopped free fruits????…

    My local woolworths still had it today it was just pears and red apples.

    I once saw a guy older then me take a backpack up to the stand and helped himself after checking for any imperfections to at least 1 banana, 2 apples and a pear before I couldn't see him anymore. I thought the kids these days know nothing about sharing and also aren't they picky lol.
    So I wonder if any stores that had it removed had people thinking 'free fruit for kids' meant 'free for anyone and to just help yourselves.'

    Then there are added things like kids leaving half eaten things on shelves or on the ground causing slips to the point they went nope.

    I dont know that the new fruit need to take from the basketb i always take it from the shelves and even when the staff is there,no one stop me from taking a banana for my son on the trolley.

    I realise Coles dont have sign for long time but the one I went I asked the staff they said ok to take fruit from then shelve if it is for kids

    My local store didn't have any fruit in the stand. I politely asked a worker if I could pick a banana from the main area and she agreed.

    Some areas don't have it due to demographics and crime. Some stop because of this also.

    my local Coles And Woolies both still do it.

    They should offer free coconuts for kids. The process of trying to crack them would:
    1. keep children occupied
    2. be entertaining for onlookers
    3. get children accustomed to failure.

      Yes please! Would make less mess than my toddler smushing the free banana all over her clothes and hands.

      Mine would throw it at the concrete floor. Either that or take a sturdy heavy object ie chopping board and use it against coconut.

      Source: giving them one. It was crude but effective in opening it

    They still have it at our local in WA. Our kid usually takes one of each.
