The city of Fayetteville has adopted nutritional guidelines developed by the American Heart Association. The guidelines specify healthy food and beverage choices that will be placed in vending machines on city-owned or leased property. Officials say the guidelines are meant to foster a healthy atmosphere for city employees and those who conduct business with the city.
