Did you eat anything today? “No.” Well how did you do on the test, not too good right? I believe that children who are’nt hungry do better on tests and focus more in school.

It's simple; by using children's school ID's to buy snacks would only lets them buy snacks three times a day.

Parents will always try to think of new problems that concerns vending machines at school.I admit some problems the school might not be able to fix,...
