Vending machines will soon be getting a makeover. A new federal law requires posting calorie counts for all vending machine snacks.

Under President Obama’s new health care law, new labeling regulations require calorie information to be displayed on 5 million vending machines nationwide.

The food and drug administration is expected to release the final rules early next year, but more than likely companies would have at least a year to comply with the changes.

The FDA says the calorie information will help consumers make healthier decisions.
