Every day you can earn an amount of points depending on how healthy you were that day. You can earn points by not eating unhealthy stuff (chocolate bar), eating healthy things (fruit) or doing some activities (exercise, help with cooking). At the end of the month, depending on how well you scored (as an individual or as a family), you can earn a reward. The rewards are defined by the family all together, at the beginning of every month ... Everyone can set a personal goal and try to break personal or all time records ...

I like this idea. It could work really well as a cooking show concept with play along at home ties. Could get prizes for at home players who succeed at high family scores.
