Starting next year, vending machines all over the country will have fewer junk food options, and more healthy ones.
The stuff that goes in them is dictated by a group called the National Automatic Merchandising Association. And its members just agreed to increase the amount of healthy options to a full THIRD of everything in there.
They're upping it from 24% to 33%, starting January 1st. So an additional 9% of the unhealthy snacks are being replaced with healthier options. Meaning you'll still see things like Snickers and Cheez-Its. But less-popular junk food options are going away.
