Healthy snacks replace sugar

6th February 2004 at 00:00
A secondary school this week became one of the first in the country to remove sugary snacks from its vending machines and replace them with a healthier alternative.

Snacks on offer include additive-free cereal bars, organic orange juice and mineral water.
