To the editor:
I had occasion recently to visit two area hospitals. To my dismay, but not surprise, their vending machines offered a vast selection of sugar-filled snacks, candy and sodas.
I was hard-pressed to find a reasonably healthy choice. One machine I saw offered only sodas — no water or even healthier juice.
Shame on these hospitals (I’m sure there are others) for not insisting on healthier choices in their vending machines. After all, they are supposed to be “health” institutions.
