They shouldnt be doing this, why dont they let kids choose what they want. They are teaching kids that an artificial banana Milk 2 Go is healthier than a good ol coke. Also, just removing machines will not help, kids need to build discipline so that they wont buy candy when it is available. Also, they can just go to the store at lunchtime or after school!

That idiotic "viral" video is proof that the youth are, in addition to being too fat and lazy to be trusted with junk food, also too self-centered and stupid to be trusted with the internet.

The cure for fat, lazy, anti-social teens with short attention spans and attitudes of entitlement?

Boot camp.
