(KCEN) -- One North Carolina mom got frustrated with the unhealthy snack choices for her kids, so she took matters into her own hands.
She got healthy vending machines put in her neighborhood.
Patti Moore has three kids and thought she had been feeding them healthy foods up until a few years ago.
But when one of her daughter's developed a food allergy, Moore started reading labels.
That sparked an interest in cleaner, healthier eating.
So Moore soon became a vendor for Human Healthy Vending, a company that makes vending machines free of processed snacks.
Moore said, "My kids will snack and that's ok. It's okay for them to eat cookies, but if I can recognize a lot of the ingredients in the products they're eating, it makes me feel better."
Moore has helped put eight of the healthy vending machines across the Charlotte area.
