  • As a dietitian to be I think this is great; however, looking at it from a marketing stand point, I don’t think this movement will necessarily take off as long as unhealthier options are still available in the same facilities as the healthier vending machines.

    I recently reviewed results from a cafeteria survey asking customers a few questions as well as asking for menu item suggestions. Almost all suggestions involved offering the cafeteria’s less healthy items more often or adding fried items to the menu. My point is healthier options are great, but they probably won’t take off until people make the decision that they want to make a change in their lifestyle/eating habits.

    In order to motivate this change, I believe we need to come up with an easier to understand nutrition labeling system and figure out a way to reverse costs so that healthier food items are less expensive than(or at least more comparable to) unhealthy options. Unfortunately, in many scenarios, money talks.

  • I’d personally like to slap these anchors around a little. They are completely missing the point.
