Green Lunchroom Challenge
Abstract:Humans are creatures of convenience. Supermarkets know this, and put candy, gum, and other small items you might not even look for during your shopping trip near the cash register to encourage impulse buying as you're waiting in line to check out. It's easy to consider and pick up such items while you wait. Similar tactics can be employed in school lunchrooms to encourage students to select healthier items that might otherwise be passed over.
