NEW YORK — Traditional vending machines might be convenient, but they can easily derail your diet.

Thanks to Farmer's Fridge, there's now a healthier alternative at places like airports and hospitals, with customized menus for each machine.

Founder and CEO Luke Saunders explains how the automated smart fridges work as they start to pop up across the city, including one at Macy's in Herald Square.
