In schools across the country, vending machines offer soda, candy, and other snacks. Some schools limit the types of foods offered in vending machines or restrict student access to the machines. Should schools set rules concerning vending machines? Here are two points of view. Viewpoint 1: Philip S., age 16 Most of the food in vending machines is high in sugar, fat, or salt—definitely not part of a healthful eating plan. I’ve seen kids eat only the foods from vending machines for lunch. If access to the vending machines were limited, students would have to eat more healthful meals. I think that schools have every right to put limits on access or to change the foods offered. Viewpoint 2: Katie T., age 15 I don’t think schools need to limit the types of snacks in vending machines or restrict students’ access to them. It’s up to the individual to make responsible decisions about his or her food choices. Besides, eating snacks high in sugar, fat, or salt is okay once in a while. 1. Are vending machines interfering with students’ efforts to eat healthfully? Why or why not? 2. Should schools control the contents of vending machines or restrict access to them? Explain your answer.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
