The vending machines where I work (Toyota) have a green flag on the "healthy" snacks, that is, snacks which are lower in fat or calories, or offer some nutrition. Peanuts and other nuts are the main choices.

It's really ridiculous when vending machines full of junk are in hospitals. It's that kind of stuff that puts people in the hospital!

They should have nuts, raisins, etc.

Not much nutrition in vending machines, but when people choose to grab a snack we may as well be informed!

a long, long, long, long time ago when I was in kindergarten I remember there being a vending machine in the school I went to and it had yellow apples and red apples in it and an occasional orange, No cookies or chips or candy. What happened to vending machines like that????
