Vending Machines at School

Should Vending Machines Be Removed From Schools?

A few coins can buy a kid lots of extra calories!  A recent study found that more than half of American middle schools and 16 percent of elementary schools have vending machines. It found that on a typical school day, 20 percent of students consumed extra calories in the form of goods from the candy, chip, and soda dispensing machines. A child that eats these foods daily could pack on an extra 14 pounds in a year.

Should schools shut down their machines to improve student health?
