Sugar banned from vending machines30th June 2010
Sugar has been banned from coffee and tea vending machines in hospitals across Wales.
Other items banned because they pose a health risk include cheddar cheese sandwiches because they contain too much fat whilst dried fruit, juice, seeds and water have been recommended as health alternatives for vending machines. The Welsh Assembly said that hospitals should reflect the importance of healthy living and try to set an example for any visitors, though the Department of Health said it was not planning to follow the Welsh example.
