This paper presents a proposal for an experimental study to improve New York public school children's eating habits at an early age in order to change their forecast of obesity for these future adults. The paper contends that minimizing or eliminating sugar intake and increasing nutritional subsistence value and physical activities should produce healthier children and increase their academic focus level. By having access to adequate nutritional products and consistent monitoring of nutrition and daily increased activities should create healthier children in the targeted communities. This should trickle over to the home life through the outreach part of the program.

From the Paper:

"The design of the intervention is to take three schools from each borough in the New York area and change the cafeteria menus for these schools. In addition, the school grounds will become sugar free. This means taking away all the candy and soda vending machines and replacing them with healthy food machine products. Students will be deterred from buying unhealthy products from outside venders who sell products on school grounds right outside of the school. Candy and soda will be considered contraband under this program, and outlawed at the school. Subjects of the study would have a home aspect of the research which would continue the study in the students' home through logs, home visits, controlled food products and weekly incentives to the families of the study."
