RFID for Veggies

No more lies, did you eat your veggies?

Some RFIDs, the real cheap and small ones, just contain a fixed number. They are getting small enough so you can swallow them accidentally.
The idea is a kit for concerned mothers. It consists of a bag of tiny RFIDs wrapped in chew-resistant plastic capsules and a RFID reader. Mothers read the RFIDs, note their stored numbers, and then use them to lace the hated (by the kids), but healthy (according to tabloids) vegetables. If there is doubt that the kids ate their vegetables they are easily scanned with the reader. Mom can tell exactly when they lied. After a few successful uses of the "lie detector" kids will become honest.
Note 1: I will never force kids to eat their veggies because some stupid tabloid medical column its healthy, but a few bucks could put my conscience to rest about selling the kit.
Note 2: Leftover RFIDs can be mounted on slippers to check if the dog ate them, that lying bastard needs a lesson too.

       Good, you may not have eaten your veggies, but now you have the spine to admit it. Mission accomplished!

       Perhaps over time our physiology would evolve to the point where we just eat RFID tags.

       Genetic engineering could make them grow right in the veggies, but as of now that would be magic.

       I nearly accidentally grilled the anti-theft RFID on the bottom of some steaks a while back.
I wonder how many days I would have been setting off department store alarms had I?
