Calorie counts coming to vending machines

(CNN) - Next time you visit the vending machine, it will likely have calorie information displayed.

New FDA regulations starting early next year will be similar to the calorie count menus in restaurants. Customers will see the calories right next to their snack choice. Officials hope this will help consumers opt for healthier alternatives that will help them stick to their new year's resolutions.

The new regulations will apply to more than 10,000 vending machine companies, each operating 20 or more machines nationwide.
