Since pizza hut is no longer safe for us, and our school promotes the book it program, I am wondering. What about my kids? they both work hard each month to get their book it slip. I am thinking about talking to our local pizza hut, and ask them to let us use the slip for breadsticks. The breadsticks are one of the few items that are safe. Or myabe just bag it all together, any thoughts? My kids just love it, and I hate to take one more thing away from them.

Our school district offers a choice of gift certificates. So my PA DD has a Pizza Hut gift certificate she hasn't gotten to use, earned before the Pizza Hut change. But she was able to choose a Subway one this last time. I don't know if the school has to enroll in multiple programs to get this, or how that all works.

Our Subways in Florida bake nut and PEANUT BUTTER cookies in the same ovens they bake the bread in.

Yes, some Subways aren't a good option either! Our local ones don't have peanut butter cookies.
Our school also offers a choice of McDonald's and Domino's certificates for students, too. I don't know what it takes to get all those choices; I'm not involved enough in the school, I guess! But my DD has gotten all of those at one time or another, mostly as reading rewards.
The Subway ones are for Kid Packs, the McDonald's ones are for a cone or sundae or for a small order of fries (2 different certificates), and the Domino's ones are for a small 1-topping pizza.

Since my older son (non PA) and my husband like Pizza Hut, I let my middle PA son earn the slip and then I trade him for $5 at Walmart. He gets to choose his prize and he's thrilled.

You might look into Book Adventure, which is sponsored by Sylvan. Kids can earn gift certificates and books and stuff there for reading, as well.
Let me see if I can find the link.
Here it is:

(Oh, and your school may participate in this one, too-- never hurts to ask. )

We had this discussion here too. My kids are homeschooled, so we had them read x number of books each month and they would get their free pizza, PLUS they got a reader card from PH and they would get a sticker each time. They really loved it because the workers there would go on and on with the kids about how great it was they were reading so much, etc and now they're upset that we're not doing it anymore. Other gcs or money isn't going to replace this for us. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

I HATE "Book It"! It's just another disgusting junk food reward. Why not reward reading with coupons for books! Now that would actually make sense...

Had to quote you just to see the whole thing in BOLD.
Hate the food reward for anything, let alone READING!!

My 4 yo has the PA. My 9 yo is in the book it program...we are chosing to give away the certificates since they are no longer safe.
As for rewarding children with food...well, pizza is NOT junk food, and to be honest..if it encourages children to read, I applaud it! A company that has found a win-win...good for them!

I don't mind rewarding with food in this case because it's "supper" food. Plus it's not just the food for my kids. It was eating out as a family (something we normally only did at pizza hut since no other pizza places in our area have dining rooms and we have no sit-down restaurants that we trust) and getting attention from the workers there about the reading. They LOVED talking to the servers there and I know they'll miss that. We went often enough and live in a small enough town that they knew us there.
