Even if you're not the parent of a kid under, say, 10, you've probably witnessed the tantrums and whines of a child trapped in a long checkout line, eye-level to all the candy.
So here's an idea we can all get behind: candy-free checkout lines. Or as they say in the U.K. and Australia (where this photo may have been taken), confectionery-free.
Turns out that many of the big grocery chains in the U.K.--like Mark and Spencer's and Tesco--have been doing this for a while. The reason: Customers with young kids told the supermarket chains they'd make healthier food choices if their children weren't surrounded by chocolate bars and other sweet treats. That was backed by Tesco's own research, which found that families with young children usually had the least healthy foods in their carts.
Some grocery stores in Australia have the same policy.
And while we all know that it's good to teach our kids that they can't always get what they want, it would be nice sometimes--after a long day, say--to skip the teachable moments by skipping temptation altogether.
