Stop food rewards

I was interested to read the March 17 article “City Schools Promoting Rewards for Attendance.” While I fully support finding creative ways to encourage students to have better attendance, I don’t believe pizza parties are a good way to do it. Food should not be used as a reward — especially for kids.

In the age of childhood obesity, we should be teaching kids about healthy eating, rather than learning to reward or comfort them with food. It’s time for schools to set a better example.
