I think that we should keep the vending machines. If we get rid of them how else will the school make money? Plus if you are on a diet or something and you walk by the vending machines, YOU DONT HAVE TO BUY ANYTHING. Its your choice whether you buy something or not, if you do fine, if you dont who cares? It should be your choice whether or not to buy something from the machines and thats why i think we should keep the vending machines.
but if thier making money...why dont we by new stuff for the school?!?
I think that having less vending machines is good. I feel this way because I think america is getting fat. Cutting down on fatty foods would help with this problem. You dont burn hardly any caleries walking to class sitting down and drinking pop while eating candy. Also its a temptation to have kids waste there money on snacks when they could have a bigger meal for less than just snacking all day which is what most kids do at home.
Well if you do get something from the vending machines you can just go home and work it off and its your choice whether you want to be fat or not and it shouldn't be the job of other people to tell you to do excersise.
Ya I do see your point about less fatty food means less food for people to eat that's junk, But the problem that people have with junk food isn't necesarily that they eat too much of it (sometimes they do though) but it's more if you excercise. You don't eat enough food and calories to walk to class and back and go through your day, you eat enough to excercise too...
i agree with you kentucky save money for upkeep
I think we should have vending machines. As along as they have heatlhy foods and drinks. Because give student oppertunite to grab somthing quick plus allows money for school buy stuff the school needs.
I 100% agree with ya Austin its nice to have vending machines handy to grab and go. Maybe put a couple more in to make it easier to get to class on time. GET'R DONE
I think its fine to have vending machines in the school if there is health snack foods and low calorie pops or any kind of water.
I love the vending mechines. I think they are a health choice. I like the variety of skittles, and if you don't like what they have or think its not health for you don't look at it or buy it, just keep walking. I also like the variety of chex mix which i think is healthy. I think they should get more vending mechiences and keep the ones we have now. If you don't like it to bad its majority rules.
good post !!
I personally dont see the problem with the vending machines. I mean its not like there is a ton of them. Plus if gainning wait is a problem then just dont eat out of them. If someone wants to be bigger,then let them.
I think that the are the best thing that we have there at MHS. I dont see any thing wrong with them. It is a way to get quick food. cause no one really thinks how much fat there is when you have a no time to stop and think.
I think that we should have more vending machines because the students would have a wide variety of food and drinks. We would have healthy snacks and healthy drinks. The students would be able to get what they want, when they want instead of waiting until lunch and having to pay more money for lunch food. I think we should have more vending machines with nutritious foods and drinks. Some students even complain about the city water and how nasty it is, so with vending machines you can have bottled water.-Jack Macias
Ok well, The vending machines are fine the way they are now. Taking them away doesn't solve the problem of obeseity in children. It's your own fault if you get fat from eating to much junk. NOT because the Vending Machine is in the hallway. Further more, I want to be able to make my own choices in my own life and not rely on the Government/School to tell me how to eat. If you don't want to get fat... DON'T EAT SO MUCH JUNK!!! And don't ruin it for the people who DO eat healthy and take care of their bodies knowing when to say no to junk food and occasionaly eat junk food every once and awhile...
The debate that we had yesterday about the vending machines. I thought it was a great experince for me and the class.... What I thought about the vending machines were that they needed to be gone.. because with then we could bre spending our money on something bad instead of healthy... and then when people were on diets or something just tryin to lose weight it was temptaion for those people for and then they would cheat themselves.... I think the vending machines right now is good enough.. and they dont need to have anymore.. they still have water and yet they still have some sweet stuff in there...
GO DAVID! ;) tehe
The thing about vending machines is that they are both good and bad. they help our school and we get new suplies. but the bad thing about them is that they have some unhealthy food. but the choice is youres about what you spend your money on, and how you feel about yourself.
I feel like vending machanies give students a good opportunity to get snaks or drinks inbetween classes. They also bring money to the school, but I think they also have a negative side too. They do not allow for the athlets to get proper nutrition and also influence our world's obesity. In our schools we do not have recycling bins and this effects our worlds polution. If we had them then I think the drink machines wouldn't be as bad. Overall, vending machines do have both positives and negatives.
Hey there!!! I feel that really when you look at the big picture you won't remeber what was in your highschool vending machines unless you are oddly traumatized by the whole deal. I love good food and i feel that in the end some one won't be pleased but that's just how the world goes round!! Truthfully I don't really care if we have vending machines, but if we are going to then go big or go home! and get da good stuff in there!!!!
I don't think we should add anymore vending machines but i don't think we should take them away. Just because there is something is in the vending machine that looks good you don't have to get anything. They are there for your convenience. If you didn't get to have lunch you can get some chex mix and you can have that. If we switch all the food in the vending machine to healthy foods than the kids will more than likely not buy anything because it doesn't look appealing. school won't get as much money. Therefore the school doesn't have the benefit to put that money towards pizza hut pizza every other friday or going on trips and things like that. So I think that we should keep the vending machine.
I totally agree!! You have some really great points!
I think that we should keep the vending machines because a lot of kids use them and they help us get money. I also think we should keep the vending the machines because if we got rid of the vending machines the kids would be upset, not only that but they really don't have anything unhealthy in them except for the vending machine with all the food in it. If they were to take out the vending machines then I think they should just take out the one with the food in it. The vending machines here at our school are put to good use so I honestly don't think it's a good idea to take them away.
I think that vending machines can be good and bad. If we had spent our money on vending machines with healthier choices it would be better then spending money on vending machines with unhealthy choices, but normally we just get unhealthy food. I think that it would be better to just spend your money on a healthy school lunch that will fill you up more then a snack from the vending machine. Also, if you just brought a water bottle from home to school you can fill it up at the water fountain which if free, whereas the vending machines costs money. Vending machines can also be bad because if you get stuff that has a lot of calories and then don't excercise becaues of laziness then you're just increasing the chance of getting health problems from being overweight. That's why vending machines can be unhealthy.
I think we should keep the vending mechiens. Even though it is not healthy it is it is your choice, you dont have to get it. But we should try and find healthy foods that would not spoil. We also should try and not put as much pop in the vending mechiens. But if you dont like the vending mechiens dont get anything!
its your chose to get stuff out
I think the vending machines are good. They help us all stay healthy by not drinking out of the vending machines. If you drink out of the vending machine then you can get a lot more germs from other people. Also, it is a lot healthier to eat exactly when your hungry instead of just waiting til lunch to eat. If we have more vending machines and just fill them with healthy, but good stuff, i think it would help. Vending machines are pretty much amazing and we should keep them no matter what.!(: SO WERE KEEPING DA VENDIN MACHINE! THE END.
I think that the vending machines are good but some times the choices arnt the best. If their were to be more vending machines with healthier choices then that would be much more benifical.
I think we have enough vending machines. But like Nate said you don't lose weight walking to class with a pop in your hand and sitting down and then drinking the pop. We should have 2 Vending machines . Water / Mineral Water and Small Snacks (Cheap).
I think that vending machines at school can be a good thing, if there are healthy items to choose from. The vending machines can bring a lot of money in for school activities. It gives students more of a variety of foods to buy during lunch. Also, during school if you are hungry, you can go to the vending machines and get something to eat, instead of having to wait until lunch, or after school. For the athletes that stay after school for practice, they can have a snack. Although, the more healthy choices that are in the vending machines the better.
YEAHH.. I LIKE THE ATHLETE THING.. THATS GOOD! I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT THAT.. YOUR SMART.. YA OK.. BYE:)
I think that we should get rid of the vending machines sure they make money but they tempt people to buy unhealthy things like M&M's or some other candy also they also make it more likely someone will spend money they should be saving up for something better.
I think that the vendeing machines are a good thing to have for when you need a quick snack between classed or before a game, but they don't need to be filled with unhealthy choices. If there were healthy things we would get more energy form one snack and would feel full longer.
I think that the vending machines are good in some ways because the school makes money from them. Plus, think of all the calories you're burning just by walking to all your classes. We NEED vending machines to keep us from starving at school.
My opinion on vending machines can go eaither way. I think they can be useful when you are hungry and just need a snack or a drink. I also think that it can be bad because we have a lot of un healthy choices in the vending machines and we could be spending our money on something better. Also America is getting fat and vending machines good be a cause of this because some people over use them and make very unhealthy choices. If we decide to start stocking the vending machines with healthy choices and maybe lower the prices a little so you dont punish people for eating healthy by ripping them off. All in all i dont really car if we have them or if we don't it doesnt really matter.
I think the vending machines are good... but we also have enough of them. maybe a few more healthy choices would be good in the vending machines. but dont take all the bad stuff out becuase you still wanna make some money for the school. that is what i think on the vending machine problem. :)
I agree. We need more healthy choices!!!
I feel that the machines are bad because instead of giving us pure natural energy, they are giving us unnatural energy that will make us crash. A lot of students have trouble staying awake in class anyway, so why have that bad energy that is going to make us crash worse. One of the worst problems in our country is childhood obesity the vending machines may be apart of that. I think the waters in the vending machines are a good idea because the fountains are gross. But water is one of the healthier things that you need. So i think that the vending machines filled with unhealthy foods need to be traded for healthy foods and drinks.
well............vending machines are pretty COOOL. cause first if you want to get a drink or snack you can get out of class.. wink wink;) most people want to anway..haha anyway who most the stuff you put in vending machines are healthy anway why would you want to take away more vairety of food choices and have less? who doesn't like food?!?!?!?
I want people to get healthy and stuff but you know if its what they want and if they want to be overweight thats fine with me. Be as fat as u want dont let other people tell you how to live
I am for and against the healthy stuff in the vending machine because who wants to buy healthy stuff at school, but u will maintain a healthy diet if you buy healthy stuff but what if u need a bit of sugar for the rest of the day!!!!!!
this country is fat.. thats not good. HEALTHY FOODS!!
I think that vending machines are needed. Because after basketball in the morning im tired and dont wanna eat school breakfeast so i will go to the vending machines. If u dont want them then dont buy stuff from them.
I think that we should have more healthy food in them. So there is less over weight kids in our years. We should still have them but with much better food in them.
I dont think we should fill them with fatty foods or really healthy foods. If we fill them with really healthy foods no one will buy it.. but if we put really fatty foods people with have higher blood pressure, cholesterol and be obese. So we should have vending machines that have a medium of foods.
I think the vending machines are fine because i like peanut butter M&M
vending machines are very good becuase they bring money to the school and give kids a snack and gives them energy. They also have very good choices.
i wrote the Big Hoz on jordans name tag :D
Should have spelled that AKA BIG HOSS....... And I agree :D
We need more food vending machines! It would bring in more money for the school and make most students happy with the fact that there is more to choose from
I think that the vending manchines are good but they could have more healthy choices with some unhealthier ones
Yes, yes, but also better sodas and can we get some dang pizza machines up in this place??? Japan or China have them so why shouldnt we???
i like our vending machines, but we should not fill them with fat foods, so we can keep healthy bodies.
I think that the vending machines in school is good because it helps bring in money and they have good snacks.
We should keep the vending machines because i like the choices of food and if we dont have lunch money in our accounts we can buy from the vending machines.
I think the Maryville school district should keep the vending machines. This would continue to bring income to the school that they could use later for use as resources for students and other things.
i think that we need vending machines and we should fill them with candy and pop the food and pop that is in them are bad nobody likes them
Vending machines are very important and useful machines in any office. Thanks for choosing it as the topic of your post.
