Motivation to Learn how to Swallow a Pill

I thought it was about time my 9yo learned to swallow a pill, and what better motivation than chocolate? I bought a single-size bag of M&M's and told him once he had swallowed two he could have the rest of the bag to eat. I was beginning to doubt he was going to get it, but finally he found his own method (swallowing the "pill" first, then following that with a drink of water). Voila! Mission Accomplished.

That is brilliant! I am definitely going to try this with my boy.
