They both claim to eat the free kids’ fruit and then leave their local Woolworths store without purchasing any items.

“Walking into Woolworths for the free fruit, pretending to shop whilst eating them and then leaving without buying anything,” one TikTok user wrote, alongside a video of himself walking through the store.

The outrageous confessions attracted harsh criticism from some TikTok users.

“I feel like it’s illegal to do it,” said one.

Another said: “Those are for kids.”

But in an alarming twist, other adult TikTok users admitted that they too took the kids’ fruit for themselves.

“I legit do laps around the shop just eating all the free fruit until i’m full,” said one.

Added another: “I got yelled at cause apparently it’s just for little kids.”

A third wrote: “Not me going in with my baby pretending that’s it’s for him even though he is too small to eat.”

One more said: “My fiancé gets me one when we go shopping together.”

Write another: “My friend got her ID checked for doing this.”

A Woolworths team member agreed it was an issue at their local store.

“As a fruit and veg worker at Woolies, I see this all day. The amount of 80-year-olds that do this …” the employee said.

Woolworths first introduced its popular “Free Fruit For Kids” campaign in 2015, offering a range of fresh produce for kids to enjoy while shopping with their parents.

The initiative was met with widespread applause from Australian parents.

“Love this, great thinking Woolworths. My kids can munch away on a healthy piece of fruit whilst I do my shopping,” said one mum.

“We have done this already quite a few times.”
