When my son was in high school here, the vending machines were filled with nothing but candy and soda. I'm not sure what they have in them now, and this is why I voted no. However, I feel they would be fine if they offered healthy choices. Why not have vending machines with fresh fruit, sandwiches, and healthier drinks? They have them in our hospitals-they could put them in the schools. Many of the students have to stay after school for practices and other extracurricular activities, and aren't able to go home for an afternoon snack. If the school isn't serving one, they either have to get junk from the machine, or try to take a healthy snack with them, which then stays in their locker or backpack all day.
Healthy choices-yes
Junk-no
