One School Rewards Kids For Healthy Behavior

Some may call it bribery, but the theory is "whatever works" in Buffalo, New York where kids are about to see a big pay-off if they make healthy choices in the lunch line at school. Aside from the benefit of good nutrition, the plan, starting in January, has schools in Buffalo offering small rewards, like a bracelet or a key chain, to the kids who choose fruits and vegetables in the cafeteria.

Nutrition classes will also be mixed into the curriculum so that the kids will learn why it's important to eat right.
