Don't take a hungry toddler to the supermarket; make sure your child's nappy is dry before you go; take your toddler's favourite toy to the supermarket; go to the supermarket at a time when it will be empty, e.g. Tuesday mornings; make sure you know what you want and where to get it; turn the expedition into a game – and pretend that sitting in the trolley seat is a special treat; reward your toddler with something small (not necessarily sweets) if her behaviour has been good.
