Monitored Vending machines in schools
Horizon OneSource is a program targeted at trimming the fat from today's youth. These are run-of-the-mill vending machines designed for schools, but with a twist. Parents can log into a child's account online and see what and how many snacks their kid is eating.
However if I think about the kindergarten I work in, I'm not surprised about the idea that much. I mean parents ask the cook how much sugar is in the donuts he makes, how much fat is in the yogurt, to please refrain from giving bread, or potatoes to his kid and so on. One day, a kid asked me if whether the apple he was eating was non-fat!
