Paying Kids To Eat Vegetables Pays Off

Not surprisingly, new research finds that kids will eat more fruits and vegetables at school if they are paid to do so. Researchers from two universities ran a week-long experiment with 15 different schools in which they offered students a nickel, quarter or raffle ticket for eating a serving of fruit or vegetable. The raffle ticket was for a chance to win a larger prize, and researchers found that offering the small rewards increased fruti and vegetable consumption by 80-percent, and decreased food waste by 33-percent. Researchers say when the study was over the students went back to the same level of fruit and vegetable consumption as before, but they are not studying whether extending the experiments over three to five weeks might yield lasting behavior changes.
