The U.S. Department of Agriculture is encouraging parents around the country to play "Grocery Store Bingo" when shopping for healthy foods with kids at the supermarket.
"Shopping w/ little ones can be tough," USDA tweeted Tuesday. "Let kids play this Grocery Store Bingo while you shop."

The tweet provided a Bingo card that can be cut out and used by kids. To play, kids simply need to mark off each time their parents buy a healthy food, until they get five across.
For example, buying oranges, tomatoes, rice, tuna fish and yogurt would result in a Bingo. But if the center space is used, parents only have to have to buy four healthy foods to get a Bingo.
