Middle School Beverage Machine

Located in the atrium outside the lunchroom doors.  These were the complete contents on September 14, 2010.

Notes: Slots means how many places in the machines are taken up by that product. All nutritional info is given per container. Vitamin Water and Minute Maid did not offer official nutrition info online, so I had to get it from different sites.

Note on sugar: There are 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon and 12 teaspoons in ¼ cup. The upper limit the USDA suggests for added sugar for someone consuming 1,600 calories per day is 6 teaspoons. Products exceeding this daily limit are shown with their sugar in red.

Dasani Water is the only product here that passes Institute of Medicine Standards. Dasani occupies 3 out of 48 slots, or 6%.
