United Kingdom-based school Baysgarth School in Barton installed a fingerprint scan system within the cafeteria to allow children to pay for lunches using a high-tech biometric system. This unique payment system for youth will ensure children always have a full stomach.

While there are many morning distractions that result in forgotten lunches or money, this system will ensure that lunchtime is a nourishing activity for everyone. The system was implemented last term and has proven to be a successful way for school cafeterias to cater to children.

Using the fingerprint scan system will allow children to purchase items and pay their debts at the end of the day, term or at the end of the year depending on each school's guidelines. This system also ensures protection over children, as each fingerprint will be secured and protected under an authoritative basis.
