SAINSBURY’S bosses are under fire after banning kids from eating chips.
The superstore has axed the favourite food from children’s menus in its cafes.
Meals are now only served with jacket potato, mash, or sweet potato fries for “health reasons”.
A stunned shopper in Halifax, West Yorks, hit out: “My boy loves chips but wasn’t allowed them with his fish fingers. It’s a farce because chips are on the adults’ menu. When I pointed this out I was told kids can’t eat chips at Sainsbury’s.
“They are such killjoys. Who are they to tell me what I can or can’t feed my kids?
“They’re also hypocrites as they happily sell me chips to cook for the children at home.”
Their kids’ menu offers fish fingers, sausage, chicken nuggets or veggie option with mashed potato, half a jacket potato or sweet potato fries, and peas or beans.
But their adult menu includes a hand battered cod and chips dish.
And chips can also be ordered as an extra portion.
The store boasts that its kids’ meals — for children aged five to ten — contain no artificial colours or flavourings.
All kids’ main meals come with a complimentary piece of fresh fruit.
A parent at Sainsbury’s cafe in Vauxhall, South London, said: “Chips are loved by children and should be a treat when eating out. It’s crazy the store is dictating diet.”
Sainsbury’s said: “We haven’t had chips on our children’s menus for 18 months.”
