Food Is Not Your Enemy

The Success of the All-Carrot Vending Machine

I love this story! A vending machine containing nothing but baby carrots was placed in a school in Ohio. Did the carrots shrivel and mold in there, while the kids sought out candy elsewhere? No! The kids bought the carrots, and the gutsy experiment proved to be a success.

It seems that when kids are hungry, they will eat whatever is made available to them. So instead of candy and Fritos, how about stocking schools with, in addition to baby carrots, such snacks as roasted peanuts, trail mix, raisins, Larabars (whose only ingredients are fruit and nuts and sometimes unsweetened chocolate), and string cheese?

I keep baby carrots in the house. It is the one food the kids can eat as much as they want, whenever they want.
