Include dietary advice like:

"Eating candy is bad for you. Why not try a nice hard boiled egg for a treat instead?

How to do: Place your eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then cover, remove from the heat and set aside 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, cool in ice water and peel.

The yolk is a storehouse of vitamins and minerals. One egg yolk contains vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B6, Iron and vitamin B12."

The card would come taped to a raw egg that they can take home and cook according to the instructions. Get them on the road to good nutrition!

       I suspect you'd be cleaning raw egg AND egg soaked cards from your windows the next day.

       I'm with [bs] on this one. I also thought this was a [beany] idea until I scrolled down.

       It makes more sense to hand out cigarettes and alcohol, thus promulgating the message "Do things that damage yourself ! Indulge yourself, work hard, pay lots of tax, then die young of preventable disease, before you can claim any retirement benefts !"

       //then die young//   

       Hmm, how about a motion charged multicolour LED with timer for subcutaneous implant as a best before indicator.

       // I also thought this was a [beany] idea until I scrolled down. //   

       Are you sure? The title has every word capitalized, and doesn't contain a verb phrase that states what the invention does.

       Never heard of a verb phrase.   

       So a verb phrase version would be "Nutrition Card Advises Kids..."?   

       Learn something new every day.

       That's pretty much what I meant.

       // I suspect you'd be cleaning raw egg AND egg soaked cards from your windows the next day.//   

       I think that's the joke.

       Bah, humbug. Getting in practice.

       You're not supposed to give out humbugs - too sugary. Eggs, green vegetables, tofu, yoghurt ... got to be a huge hit with kids.   

       You just need to persuade them to Give Peas A Chance ...

       Or soft boiled eggs with toast soldiers.   

       Top tip: Add a bit of extra salt and lashings of white pepper to the buttered toast before cutting instead of applying to egg.   

       And its not hard to caramelize veggies. Drain, sling back in pan with a little butter and icing sugar. 2 mins - done. Can't do much harm - I was practically on a crisps and mars bar diet when I was growing.

       I don't see what could possibly go wrong. For best results, also distribute discount (1-ply) toilet tissue rolls with a note about saving money for retirement.

       Like a whole "Nutrition / Sound Investment Strategy / Body Cleanliness" kit? I like it!
doctorremulac3, Nov 12 2018
  

       // I was practically on a crisps and mars bar diet //   

       That explains a lot. Did you chew the heads off your lead soldiers, too ?
