In Los Angeles (LA), if you go to a vending machine managed by a county department or facility, it is likely to be filled with healthier food options than your average vending machine. In 2011, the county’s Department of Public Health and the Board of Supervisors passed a procurement policy establishing nutrition standards covering food and beverages purchased, distributed, or sold by every county department and facility. By making the healthier option the easy option, LA hopes this will contribute to the fight against growing levels of obesity.
