What's a good argument saying that vending machines should not be taken out of a high school?

Revenue for the school- all schools are short on cash and need every bit of help they can get.
The other argument is freedom of choice.

This has been a source of controversy since its inception. Schools do this for the extra income, budgets cuts kinda forced schools to seek out funds for programs that would have been lost otherwise.
This unfortunately adds to unhealthy eating habits. (lets face it a kid isnt going to pay for yogurt and vegetables out of a machine) They want candy and soda.
But if you are going to fight to keep them you have to spin some yarn (a propaganda campaign if you will). You have to promote a healthy vending program, Juice, milk, water, vegetable snack packs, yogurt (this gets the healthy eating and kids are over weight crowd off your back) Now tie that together with the fact that sports programs are cut because of budget cuts and you got yourself a good base to fight to maintain them.
" Schools make money from our heathy choice vending machines to help promote heathy eating habits and to help financially maintain sport programs which would have been eliminated due to budget cuts, this is a great start for a heathy lifestyle"
Sometimes you have to be a "politician" if you want to win a argument such as this.

Freedom of choice. You can't force somebody to be healthy. Plus, some people have food allergies and can't eat some so called healthy snacks!! So they should just mind their own business what do they care what you eat or snack on.

Students benefit from a snack in the middle of the day. Specially students who still have physical education.
