If you have a vending machine in your school, it’s important to make sure it’s stocked with healthy snacks.
First of all, kids get hungry at school. They need to be able to eat something that will help them stay focused, but also won’t make them feel sluggish or make their stomachs hurt.
Second, eating healthy at school helps build a good habit for life—you’re setting up your kids for success by helping them learn how to balance their diet throughout the day.
Finally, it’s just good manners! If someone brings a candy bar into class as an offering during snack time, no one wants to feel left out of the fun when they don’t have any options available that are better for them.
