Students stomachs rumble in response to food guidelines
The district has adopted and implemented the state and federal policies and guidelines for food service, including the instructions to restrict students access to vending machines. Schools are more healthy with vending machines with products like apples, bananas, oranges, fruit salad, water, juice, and many more healthy things. The school has an opportunity and responsibility to create a healthy campus.
It will be great for our school to have healthy vending machines to have more healthy snacks and not chips around our campus. One of the advantages of having vending devices is to provide efficiently for students. The problem of installing vending machines is that the U.S Department of Agriculture has recently proposed to impose restrictions on food items sold in schools.
A student said, “ It will help us get snacks when we do not like the food for lunch, and it will still give us the nutrients we need.”
