In addition to the choice of a free banana for a snack instead of a cookie, I also loved the section of pre-packaged, healthy lunch options for kids that Jay has placed in the front of the store!!
I wondered if these greener choices for kids were being offered at all Publix Supermarkets so I called to ask. Within an hour (I love Publix as they are sooo amazing with their customer service no matter what you need) someone got back to me and their answer to my question kind of surprised me. Apparently this is just something that is being done at our local Publix! What a bummer for the rest of the shoppers at all of the other Publix Supermarkets. My Lexie jumped at the chance to get a banana instead of a cookie, although Hayden-Jay still chose a cookie.
|So yummy in her tummy and no sugar buzz to deal with while shopping!|
So I give props to my favorite Publix store manager, Jay Thompson, and I ask the question to the Publix big wigs, "When are you going to roll these offerings out in your other 1,015 stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama?"
