The struggle of the weekly shop is something most parents of large families will empathise with, but now Asda have created a prototype shopping trolley which can seat three children.

The specially designed 'three child trolley' can safely hold three young children and could be rolled out in Asda stores across the UK after the success of their prototype design.

The trolley was created after Manda Kiernan, 32, revealed the everyday problem parents have when trying to shop with three or more children.

Manda explained: "It was a nightmare as I used to have a triple wagon from America that I used to push the triplets in but it just got too heavy to push around the trolley.

Manda then approached the staff at her local Asda supermarket in Gloucester, Gloucestershire who then took her suggestion to head office.

"I was also quite excited that I would be able to do a weekly shop with the children as well. The triplets seem to rather like it as well."

Asda community colleague Fay Edwards said: "Mrs Kiernan contacted us asking if there was anything that we could do as a company to help her shop with the children as the trollies that we had were not suitable for the triplets."

"After the feedback went to head office, the company set about building a prototype to be used in store"We would like others to come in and try it and they can give us their feedback.

"Hopefully then we may be able to get more and it may spark other stores to do the same.”

Mr Savage added: "I am delighted at the difference that this can fundamentally make to this family's shopping experience."
