Starting January 1st, 1/3 of snacks in vending machines will be healthy

You’ll either love this news or hate it:  Starting next year, vending machines all over the country will have fewer junk food options, and more healthy ones.  The stuff that goes in them is dictated by a group called the National Automatic Merchandising Association.  And its members just agreed to increase the amount of healthy options to a full THIRD of everything in there.

They’re upping it from 24% to 33%, starting January 1st.  So an additional 9% of the unhealthy snacks are being replaced with healthier options.  I just hope they don’t take away Cheez-It’s!
