13 Reasons Supermarket Shopping With Kids Is The Absolute Worst

"Tantrum in aisle four." At least with the FoodSwitch app, making the right food choices for your family is one less thing to worry about.

1. Trying to get your child into the trolley seat is quite the mission.

And you've only just walked in the door.

2. But the real challenge is keeping them in there for longer than 20 seconds.

3. You write yourself a shopping list, even though you know you'll never be able to stick to it.

4. Because no matter how hard you try, you still find mysterious items you're sure you didn't put in the trolley.

5. You try to move through the aisles quickly so there's less chance your kids will get distracted by all the brightly coloured packaging.

6. You have to think of creative ways to keep your kids occupied. Like turning shopping into a game!

7. You try getting the kids to help, but sometimes it ends up being more trouble than it's worth.

Bless their cotton socks.

8. You dread nothing more than your kid chucking a tantrum midway through your shop.

9. And you always try to avoid disciplining them in public because you can feel EVERYONE watching you.

10. You get sucked into buying stuff you know isn't good for your family just because it's on special.

11. Your heart sinks when you finally make it to the checkout only to be greeted by a massive queue.

12. By this point, honestly, you just feel like giving up.

13. But, alas, you made it home! Congrats! Except – oops – you forgot the one thing you went there for in the first place.

Shopping with kids is hard enough. That's why Bupa partnered with The George Institute for Global Health to create FoodSwitch, an app that helps make choosing healthier options for your family easier.
