Veggie Cards

Have supermarkets give out cards for certain items that are bought, kids can collect these cards, trade them with friends, and if they have a good collection they can bring it to the supermarket and trade it in for a prize!

Suppose the kid goes to the supermarket with his/her parent and they decide to buy broccoli, and for that particular day at the supermarket, buying broccoli will reward you (the kid) with a broccoli card. This card would have information about broccoli and a little question section that the kid has to fill out.
The kid would have friends who have other cards, then they could trade them.
After trading and collecting them, the kid could arrange them in a particular collection like greens (broccoli, spinach, etc.) or legumes...
They could then take the collection to the supermarket to trade it for an awesome toy or some prize.

I really like the concept of having collectibles you can acquire over time. I think the trick and the challenge will be coming up with cards or something so appealing the kids will want to forgo the not-so-fresh or unhealthy item for the broccoli. A selection of awesome toys/prizes/recognition...what are kids into these days?

Why not also have celebs/sports stars/singers with their favorite healthy options and a phone number for a free sample of the product?
