As a full-time working mother of an athletic son, I have the great opportunity to attend many games and fundraisers in support of great students. At many of these functions I typically notice they’re not very many healthy or protein snacks usually provided at these events. Most of the selections provided to the students are junk food with high levels of salt and sugars. Since most students selection is motivated by their surroundings; providing vending-machine interventions that stimulate low-calorie choices can therefore play a role in improving the healthfulness of the food environment landscape. With so many milestones yet to explore in my athletic son’s future providing vending machines that dispense essential products and healthy goods is a piece of mind!
