December 2011, Houma, Louisiana.- Regarding your article, “Healthy vending machines come to area” by Cara Bayles, hearty congratulations to Nick Bruce for bringing the franchise Fresh Healthy Vending to Terrebonne and Lafourche.
Proud to see the Terrebonne Parish Main Library and the Government Tower among the first in our community to invite them in.
With obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease all influenced by diet, this is a positive step to provide a better choice in “snacks.”
I will be interested to see exactly what is offered and hope that parent groups, teachers and administrators take a good look at perhaps affording students a healthy alternative in the near future.
Today’s choices do shape tomorrow’s future.
