“Well, I don’t reall buy anything from the vending machines in the first place, but I do believe that each and every one is responsible for their own health, so I don’t think that the school should change anything really. We’re just responsible for our own health and food choices.”

“Well, of course it can be harmful for students health since most of the snack machines are mostly junk food. But [in] some cases we do need, like, the extra sugar and our bodies want it, to help us study and focus on our stuff.”

“I do believe they are hindering students’ health. The way we can change that is by providing alternative healthy snacks in the vending machines at a reasonable price, maybe even an equivalent to what we currently offer. We do not want to discourage students from buying healthier options if it’s more expensive.”

“I believe they are harming us because we are mostly in a hurry. I speak for myself, but I think that everyone is pretty much in a hurry all the time. So, what’s the fastest way to get something to eat? Even with drinks, there are Cokes everywhere and Monsters and energy drinks. I think it is harming us because of that time issue, and a way to alleviate that is by having more healthier snack options.”
