Healthy Vending Machines

Ohio high school installs all-carrot vending machines.

Mason High School in Mason, Ohio has installed a vending machine that sells only baby carrots, and the response from students has been positive. “I don’t think the carrots had been in there a full hour before students started buying them,” Mason High School’s Assistant Principal George Coates said. The machine was installed by an alliance of farmers, and fits with Ohio’s new Healthy Choices for Healthy Children legislation as part of a national campaign to market carrots as a healthy alternative to typical vending machine fare. All proceeds from the carrots go to the school, and are 50 cents per three-ounce bag.
