Welcome! We are glad you’re interested in visiting Schnucks for a field trip. At Schnucks, we believe that every kid deserves to learn the basics about food, where it comes from, and how it affects their bodies, which is why our team of dietitians developed the Schnucks Healthy Kids Field Trip program. We know how important it is to help kids develop healthy habits at a young age. Which is why we are excited to offer a field trip that is fun and engaging for kids as they explore the wonders of a supermarket, and teaches important life skills that will help them develop healthier habits.
