CHILDREN can get one of their five a day for free at Morrisons in Taunton.

The store is taking part in the supermarket's national Free Fruit for Kids scheme.

Ripe, sweet and good eating quality bananas, apples, pears, clementines and satsumas will be offered in on a wooden stand at the premises' entrance to youngsters shopping with their parents or carers.

Every morning the store's greengrocers will replenish the stand with produce that might otherwise have been binned.

Morrisons Taunton store manager John Kervell said: "Sometimes our store is left with unsold fruit and customers would prefer us to find a use for it.

"So we’re putting out fruit that’s at risk of not being sold for children to help themselves. It’s healthy for them, reduces food waste in our store and will help make shopping easier for parents."
