Everyone loves sugar filled snacks, especially children. A kid’s day can be made so much better just by handing them their favorite candy bar. This is something students looked forward to during their school day. Sadly, this was made to change. Schools started banning snacks, and drinks based on their unhealthy effect they have on individuals. According to Beverly Ballaro and Ann Griswold in "Junk Food in Schools: An Overview,” this change occurred when Michelle Obama launched her project for healthy eating in 2010. Let’s Move! Was her way to fix child obesity in America. This directed schools to feed children healthier options, and twice as many vegetables or fruit. This was not a necessity for public schools across the United States. Students should not be limited to what they eat in school. As long as they are being fed their basic lunch, it should not be important what they decide to snack on.
Why vending machines should be allowed at school? I think vending machines should be allowed at schools in America because of these three reasons. To begin with it makes the school money. Another reason is that some students don’t have enough energy to stay awake in class. Also the

Vending Machines or Not? Schools in America should have vending machines. Imagine having no vending machine in the hallway at school. Now imagine having a vending machine in the hall, you would like it wouldn’t you. Most schools do not have vending machines but I feel that we should. Students might get hungry in class, but if the school had a vending machine students would not get as hungry in class. America’s schools should have vending machines.
There is a dramatic increase in the number of children who are being affected by diabetes and obesity in America. Sugary drinks and unhealthy snacks should be taken out of the vending machines in schools and replaced with healthier choices to help stop this trend. Some may argue that taking

“The joy and satisfaction of a meal is equal to the passion and effort given its preparation.” Said by famous chef -Gordon Ramsay. Gordon Ramsay a known chef around the world loves to cook food for everyone, but some people don’t have the ability during the school day to buy a lunch. So, kids that are in school get hungry throughout the day and they only have one period dedicated to their food. I think that all schools should have vending machines all around the school and not just in the cafeteria, and open during the whole school day. Some kids in most schools have a reduced lunch or might not be able to buy a lunch at all. Students may have up to one dollar and that’s only enough for one item from the vending machines so they have to wait until their lunch period.
Should Vending Machines be Turned off during the School Day? Many schools nowadays turn off their vending machines during the school day to prevent students from eating fattening foods. In California and Hawaii, state legislators are very close to passing a law that would ban any drinks excluding milk, water or juice from being sold in elementary schools, and reduce the hours older students can use the vending machines. Michelle Obama and the Obama Administration have asked Congress to improve children's nutrition by getting rid of school vending machines that provide students with sugary snacks and drinks. The problem with this is school’s are making an extravagant amount of money off feeding their students with artificial flavoring and
Schools do a “good” job in promoting certain healthy foods in their cafeterias. Yes, students do not enjoy eating them but it is for their good. The fact that schools sell the “baked” chips is a good and a bad idea. It is a good idea because they are healthier than the regular chips sold in grocery stores and smaller than regular sizes. The bad part comes to the fact that they are still being sold and most students prefer to purchase them instead of fruits. In my case, I know I would prefer to eat those chips instead of the fruits. Vending machines are rarely seen in schools but the schools that do have them do not have healthy items inside. Sodas and junk snacks are what are mostly seen in those vending machines along with others. Students
Vending machines should be allowed in every school. Most students do not eat school lunch; others cannot leave school campus to go get lunch. And many do not bring lunch from home. Throughout school I am not really hungry, but a snack here and there is good. Not all vending machines have to have unhealthy snacks in them. Another good reason to have vending machines in school is to help school profit. With the money a school makes in a vending machine, they could buy new school supplies. So much money can be made off vending machines. A big issue with having vending machines is that the high calorie snacks cause obesity. That is not true because not all snacks are unhealthy. Having vending machines give students the right to make the decision
There are many schools that have banned snacks and sodas from the school vending machines. Balko believe that American people need to take their own responsibility for their health. "Instead of manipulating or intervening in the array of food options available to American consumers, our government ought to be working to foster a sense of responsibility in and ownership of our health and well-being" (Page 396). In my opinion, this will be the best way to reduce obesity from America and this can teach people what they can eat and they will be responsible for their health. Myself and Balko’s argument are alike because as he said in article getting rid of sodas and vending machines from school will help decrease obesity. I believe the same way Balko believes. This will help lower obesity if there are no sodas or vending machines kids and young people will know what is good for them, and what they can
The first reason that I think that there should be soda machines and vending machines available to student at GMS is because sometimes kids want other things to drink other than having to drink milk and juice and water everyday for lunch and breakfast. Drinking the same thing everyday gets tiring. Some things that we have for lunch in the cafeteria are not good with milk.
