In a post she shared on her Instagram page, Sarah, who has four children, wrote “Lets see if they can sneak sweets and treats now! So sick of the arguments about unhealthy snacks (esp with lockdown) so I have bought a vending machine! If they want sweets they can do things (chores, school work etc) to earn money for them. The kids are very excited about this but not as excited as me! @ladbabyofficial we hacked it!!!!”

As per metro.co.uk, the kids have also made their parents put in their favourite munchies in the machine, so that they too will have to pay up if they wanted to eat anything unhealthy.
