I had a sweet and Pringles tower in a 6th form common room. Never took any money.

Local authorities around here are very strict about what can be sold in vending machines in schools as they don't want to be seen to be encouraging obesity, of course the kids all just go to the local shop and Greggs instead. You could try putting sugar free and healthier options in but then no one would buy them

Most schools are now 'Healthy Schools' compliant and products have to be CQUIN compliant which basically means lower calorie and unpopular with the students

The restrictions on what you are able to sell in a vending machine in a school vary depending on the state or country in which the school is located. However, there are some general guidelines that are followed by most schools.

Foods and beverages sold in school vending machines must typically meet certain nutritional standards. This means that they must be low in saturated and trans fats, sugar, and sodium. They must also be a good source of nutrients, such as fiber, protein, and vitamins.

Some schools also have restrictions on the types of foods and beverages that can be sold in vending machines. For example, some schools ban the sale of sugary drinks, such as soda and sports drinks. Others ban the sale of candy and other junk food.

It is important to check with your local school district to find out what specific restriction are in place. You can usually find this information on the school district's website or by contacting the school district's food service department
