 Since they charge by the pound for bananas yes it's stealing.

Well since bananas are weighed ... And she has eaten it... Unless she grabs another and puts it back... Which I doubt... It's stealing .... Now a bag of chips or something not weighed not that bug of an issue ... I would never do it. . If I were Thad hungry u would pick something buy it then go about mg shopping...

As long as she pays for it, its fine. It is a little off for an adult to do it though.

Eating or drinking while shopping is stealing, unless the item has been paid for before consumption.  The food and drink in a grocery store is the property of the store until you hand over the money to pay for it.  If you consume it before you pay for it, then you are in fact stealing.

I wouldn't do it for bananas...but I have eatten a grape before buying a batch. I don't want sour grapes. I have eaten a candy bar while standing in line waiting to check out and then handed them the empty wrapper. I have seen people do crazier, but have no idea if they pay for the stuff or not.

I've never done it but my grandmother is notorious for picking up a bunch of grapes and munching on them as she shops.

Well since it's produce then yes that's stealing... Though I have grabbed a tub of puffs for DS to munch on while shopping but I always tell the cashier when we pay.
