A Mixed Message: The School Vending Machine.
Hinkle, Margaret Murray
Journal of School Health, v52 n1 p20-24 Jan 1982

Since sugar is a major cause of tooth decay and since many confections are sold in schools, it is recommended that schools remove confections and other nonnutritional food items from vending machines, fund-raising activities, and food services.
