Snack machines are the easiest ways for schools to make money. They sell market brand products that teens consume every day, but they sell them at a slightly higher price to easily make money. Recently school snack machines have started selling healthier options while still making a substantial amount of money doing something that is completely legal. If snack machines were not allowed at schools then the schools would lose a great way of making money and thus would not be able to give a better standard of education they otherwise would be, and teenagers who often eat ONLY what they can buy from vending machines would lose how they bought lunch.

On another note, school lunches are terribly unhealthy for you, and vending machines are offering less harmful and even healthier alternatives to lunch than what schools have to offer. If vending machines were not allowed in schools than it would force many more teenagers to go hungry or rely on food that is worse for your health then what was in the vending machines.
