A Park Pulse poll conducted by the National Recreation and Park Association asked 1,017 Americans ages 18+ how important it is to them that vending machines and concession stands in public spaces include healthy food and drink options.
NRPA encourages public venues (e.g., public parks and recreation centers)
to add healthy food and drink options at vending machines and concession stands.
67% of Americans agree it's important that vending machines and concession stands in public spaces include healthy food and drink options
Parents (74%) feel much stronger than non-parents (64%) about having healthy food and drink options in public spaces

Based upon a survey conducted for the National Recreation and Park Association by Wakeﬁeld Research among 1,017 nationally representative Americans, ages 18+, between June 16th and June 23rd, 2016, using an email invitation and an online survey. Quotas have been set to ensure reliable and accurate representation of the U.S. adult population ages 18+. Results of any sample are subject to sampling variation. The magnitude of the variation is measurable and is affected by the number of interviews and the level of the percentages expressing the results. For the interviews conducted in this particular study, the chances are 95 in 100 that a survey result does not vary, plus or minus, by more than 3.1 percentage points from the result that would be obtained if interviews had been conducted with all persons in the universe represented by the sample. All decimals are rounded to the nearest percentage point. This may result in certain numerical totals adding up to slightly more or less than 100%.
