Eat right, earn an iPod

Should healthy eating be rewarded?
Secondary school pupils in Glasgow are being offered the chance to win iPods, Xbox consoles and theatre tickets with a new healthy eating swipecard system.

The city council is encouraging pupils at the city's 29 secondary schools to ditch junk food in favour of a healthier diet.

Pupils gain points by eating healthy foods and the more they earn, the greater the prize.

About 30,000 youngsters can use the swipecard and the council says it is confident they will not turn their noses up at salad if it means winning an iPod.
