Minnesota HyVee features healthy snacks in check-out lane

If you've ever been through a grocery store check-out lane with a child, you know that it can be like running the gauntlet.

Heck, even without a child it can be challenging. You are wedged into a space where candy and soda stand before you calling your name.

Now, shoppers at a Minnesota HyVee can choose a more health-friendly check-out lane.

If we had one of these in Lawrence, would you use it? What snacks would you like to see featured?

Yes, but how does this benefit major corporations like Nestle? That's what it's all about in US America these days.

I have seen bananas close to check out before and have grabbed one on occasion.

Definately! I hate standing in line for that very reason...ya know, you've shopped, you're on your way home to fix dinner (so, now you're starving AND so are the kids!) and...WHAMMO! Candy Bars and Skittles smacking you upside your face, screaming EAT ME! EAT ME! Healthy snacks at the check out is SUCH a great idea...unless of course they'll be charging a buck n a half for a banana? Then maybe I'd just skip it...Just like the Candy! ;)
