How would you feel about rewarding your kids with cash, if they eat their greens?

UK health expects reckon the idea has merit and parents should start bribing their kids in a bid to tackle growing obesity rates worldwide. 

They suggest paying kids to eat unpopular veggies, like broccoli, in exchange for a small amount of money, could be an effective way to change dietary habits. 

The idea was first tabled by Tam Fry of the UK's National Obesity Forum charity and has been supported by a number of Aussie specialists. 

Past research has suggested that incentives can bring on change, but does this approach go too far?
