Dr. Benzinger Blog: School Vending Machines

What is a parent to do? Vending machines with nothing healthy in them for our children to eat or drink are rampant in our schools. I do not send extra change for my daughter to purchase such items and I ask for a print out of everything she buys at school and I even actually look at it. 

We must understand that the amount of time our children spend at school can be harmful if the food and drinks they choose hurt their health long term. Be active and look for ways to encourage your schools to do a better job at protecting your child’s health.

God Bless,
