Tesco trials free fruit handout to children in Glasgow stores

Tesco stores in Glasgow are handing out free fruit to children as part of a four week trial.

Boxes of apples, bananas and oranges will be placed near entrances for parents to give to their children at 15 stores.

As well as helping children get their five a day, Tesco is hoping the new initiative will help foster healthy eating habits.

The move is the latest in a number of initiatives being undertaken by Tesco in a bid to improve an image tarnished by an accounting scandal and customer dissatisfaction at poor service in its stores. As well as increasing the number of staff in stores and cutting prices, Tesco is also distributing unsold food to charities helping the needy and removing sugary drinks designed for school lunchboxes from its shelves.
