I put on weight as a result of vending machines. They're like everything else-use it in moderation. Use it too much and you can expect trouble!

We should never have been introduced to junk food in the first place. I think it's one of humanity's biggest mistakes. Everything would have been a little better.

I think that they should at least be cut down on in schools, or be replaced with ones that stock healthy food, like alpen bars or apples. But outside the school environment, no. If ppl want to eat crap, they should be able to, even if others dont agree with it; its a free country. But i DO agree with having a better example avaibale for kids.

In schools- it would probably be better to replace them with healthy ones that stock fruit and water and milk. In general- no. I need my chocolate fix :P

The college couldn't get rid of theirs - the tutors would complain :P

Education is the most crucial thing here. There is nothing wrong with having a chocolate bar at morning break, providing you're getting a balanced diet with at least five portions of fruit and vegetables each day. There is something very wrong with outright prohibition. If chocolate, crisps, and sweets are constantly appearing in the same sentence as 'childhood obesity' in the same newspapers that feature photos of stick-thin celebrities, what message does that send out to uncertain young people - especially girls? As someone who has had an eating disorder, I know the answer to that one.

We are getting very unhealthy as a society. Children need to be taught the value of good nutrition, and healthy food needs to be given more 'street cred'. How is it that there are countless adverts for chocolate on TV but none for the healthier products? Moderation in everything.

Our school has gone healthy as a result of Jamie Oliver's Campaign to get schools to sell more healthy lunches. I think one of the first thing they did was put healthy things in the Vending machine.

I don't know about outside school, but if you can only get healthy food in the cafe then people have no choice. I have a packed lunch, so It doesn't really effect me.

On T.V there was a program where Jamie Oliver was making a school (I can't remember the schools name) more healthy. He viseted a junior school (the one he was at was a senior school), and showed the Children in one class some vegetables and they didn't know what they were. he then showed them some fast food restaraunt sighns and they knew what they were. He got that class to be more healthy, even at home.

I think all schools (in England) are supposed to be comming more healthy.

I suppose I should have stated that the no vending machines rule should only apply to primary schools, as it's too much of a temptation. Bring back apples and milk at breaktime! (I had them all during infants). By secondary school, there should be a choice, with the healthy food being cheaper :P

Yes, introducing junk food to young, innocent children is asking for trouble.

When I was in Junior school, we had a change of head teachers. the new one made a new school rule which said that at break we could only eat fruit/fruit products (like dried fruit). To get around this rule, some people had fruit winders, which were supposedly made of fruit, but really had loads of suger in.
