A school in West Yorkshire is using biometric scanners to allow parents to check if their children are choosing healthy options at lunchtime.
Pupils at Ossett School in Wakefield place their index finger on the scanner as they arrive at the canteen.
The scanner reading tells school staff how much each child can spend on their meal and records what food they choose.

biometric: Any specific and uniquely identifiable physical human characteristic, e.g., of the retina, iris, acoustic spectrum of the voice (i.e., voiceprint), fingerprint(s), handwriting, pattern of finger lengths, etc., that may be used to validate the identity of an individual. Note: Biometrics provide a highly secure means of identification, for purposes of security involving, e.g., Internet communications and cryptosystems.
