Kroger is promoting healthy living through a new initiative that gives kids free fruit to munch on while their parents do the grocery shopping.

All stores throughout the Dayton area division are now participating in the program, according to a company spokeswoman.

The Cincinnati-based grocery retailer piloted its “Free Fruit for Kids” program in several stores starting last year. Parents can grab a piece of fruit for their children to eat from the produce section.
