BIG SUPERMARKET CHAINS SHOULD GIVE FRUITS TO CHILDREN FOR FREE

A great idea just hit me. Why don't our supermarkets, like NTUC, Cold Storage and Giant, organize free fruits for children like they do overseas? One of my observations in NZ is that they actually do have such a programme for the children there. Besides NZ, I believe many European countries too, carry out similar schemes.

Because of Singapore's hectic lifestyle, many of us neglect consuming fruits in our regular diets. Hopefully, by having this kind of programmes, it could raise awareness for young parents to inculcate a balanced diet for their children. This kind of good eating habits should definitely start from young. It also helps young families ease a bit of their economic constraints that they might be struggling financially to afford a nutritious diet for our precious future generations.

Surely, the big corporations can alleviate a bit of their costs to offer free fruits to children, so that they can enjoy the fruits, as well as develop a healthy habit of eating fruits?

WOMAN FINDS LIVE INSECT PACKED TOGETHER WITH NTUC'S CHICKEN FILLET

A Facebook user complained about finding an insect in her packaged chicken fillet from NTUC. She said the fly was still (packed) alive! "Bought this at NUH Ntuc this morning 6.6.17. There's a fly in it. This chicken fillet was packed yesterday. When I open the pack, the fly was still moving. Ntuc should do a check seriously since there has been cases of insects 'packed together'. I got to throw this pack away for fear of maggots."

CHEAT TRIES TO SCAM ON CAROUSELL, GETS ARRESTED BY POLICE

A 28 year old man who allegedly tried to sell NTUC shopping vouchers on Carousell, have been arrested by the police for the scam. The man had allegedly tried to make a quick profit by selling the vouchers but did not give his buyer the agreed amount after receiving the payment.

The police had received a report from a victim on May 16, who purchased S$500 worth of NTUC Fairprice vouchers from the man at a discounted price of S$470. After payment was made by the victim, she discovered that the envelope contained only S$250 worth of NTUC vouchers. The suspect then became uncontactable.

HEARTLESS NTUC STAFF DID NOT HELP WOMAN WHO FELL & INJURED HERSELF

Just got home from Fairprice at Zhongshan Mall. Witnessed a painful scene while I was about to proceed to the self checkout with my groceries. A lady shopper, guess she's around mid-fifties, slipped and fell behind me and was struggling to get up. She complained of the severe pain in her right arm coz she fell on it and was worried she might have a fracture. I took the ice pack from the ice box to apply on her arm and she was able to move her arm after a while, and told me the pain has subsided.

I was very disappointed with the staff at the cashier and especially the old man standing in charge at the self checkout counters. NONE OF THEM CAME FORWARD TO CHECK IF THE LADY WAS ALRIGHT OR OFFERED HELP OR AT LEAST BRING HER A SEAT!!! Especially that old man, he just stood far away and didn't even show concern at all!!! Really wonder how the staff are trained and if they are trained at all to attend to such sudden incident. Fairprice authorities please look into this issue!

"Bought a packet Naturel Brown Rice at CSM NTUC this morning.The rice was intended for my 11months old nephew. To my horror, I found worms inside the pack of rice. I tried to contact CSM NTUC number, no one pick up the call. pls contact me asap."

What will happen if the baby ate it? What's going on with food hygiene nowadays?

NTUC FAIRPRICE SEGREGATE THEIR MARKET INTO ATAS AND BUDGET CONSCIOUS

NTUC Fairprice have announced that they will open another six more supermarkets for budget conscious shoppers this year, due the demand for more of such budget groceries. These stores feature a smaller but more affordable range of products, including housebrand products, Every Day Low Price and Yellow Dot items, which comprise about half the product mix in the stores.

Makes you wonder why they can't just carry the cheaper and budget groceries product in all of their NTUC stores. Must be very discriminatory to budget conscious Singaporeans, is it? What is wrong trying to save a few dollars here and there, now that prices everywhere are just getting too high?
