Re: Diet Cards vs. Food Synthesizers

Maybe they're personnel-specific cards, not food-specific cards.
...Perhaps the first one Chapel inserts is a generic "I'm crew, gimme food" clearance card - but once Stevie the Picky One orders peach on his pistachio, she has to substitute the "I'm medical crew, gimme unusual and unhealthy food" special clearance card?

Or perhaps she planned on giving each kid a card, emptied of all harmful content and only containing the clearance for two helpings of ice cream - and when the kid ordered three flavors, that is, three helpings, she needed to insert a new card?

In any case, probably the poorest possible example for study if we want to decipher the capabilities and usage of TOS data chips!
