Hi I am Kathy Moore for About.com Parenting. I have always loved grocery shopping. And, it is even more fun to take my kids, as long as I have a plan. This program will offer tips to make your next grocery shopping trip a real adventure.
When to Go Grocery Shopping with Kids

First, it is best to plan your trip when your children are fed and rested. Cranky kids are no fun for you, or anyone else in the store. I have found that when my kids are rested and not hungry, they will behave better. It is also important to make sure your child is either securely buckled in the cart or stays safely at your side.

I have found that midweek grocery trips, during late morning or the mid afternoon, are the best times to visit the grocery store. The shelves are stocked, the isles swept and usually it is less crowded.
Create a Grocery Shopping Game

As we drive to the store, I talk to the kids about some of the items we will be looking for, to get them thinking about particular foods, such as strawberries, blueberries or apples. Then, when we are in the store, I ask them to recall one of the items and see if they can find it.

Another fun game is to have your kids guess a fruit or vegetable without naming it. Describe the shape, color and smell. Once we find what we are looking for, I let my kids help bag it up. When there are several different color choices of something I need, like tissue, I get my kids involved by letting them choose the boxes. My kids also think it is fun to make up rhymes or stories or songs about the food we are looking for.

In the dairy section ask my kids to name the different colors they see on the milk jug tops, or identify the largest and smallest containers of yogurt. While you are waiting in the checkout line, one way to distract your kids from the candy display is to challenge them to find five things that begin with B, or are red.
Remember to Use Positive Feedback

Praising your child throughout the trip with encouraging words and a hug will reinforce their appropriate behavior. And engaging them in the shopping process will help them to communicate, observe, listen and think, all critical skills they will use for the rest of their life. Thanks for watching.
