What!? Healthy Vending Machines? Yes please!
Are you at work starving, again? Do you dread the thought of going to the vending machine? And when you get there, do you let out a stressful sigh at your choice of either cookies or a candy bar, knowing that you’ll have to stay at the gym and extra 2o minutes tonight to work off your mid-day snack? I bet you are thinking your job is just enabling your unhealthy habits. That’s about to change.
Sigh no more! Fresh Healthy Vending is a company that is taking the stress out of snacking choices. They place vending machines carrying super healthy, organic and delicious snack items in businesses and schools all over the country. Thankfully, this trend is now growing and it’s getting more popular by the day.
As more and more people are starting to lead healthier lifestyles, more people are looking for healthier options when they are on-the-move snacking. Fresh Healthy Vending places their vending machines in the places you visit most, such as; school, work or even the local YMCA. This company specializes in natural and organic offerings. You can choose items like; juices, smoothies, coconut water, yogurt, granola (i.e. Kashi brand), and even fruit – all fresh! Plus, the products they provide can be tailored for each location providing the most tempting treats for their corresponding audiences. They can even accept credit and debit cards as well as cash. So now, instead of that 3:00pm soda craving, you can re-energize with a refreshing coconut water (and not have to pay for it later at the gym, what a concept)!
So now that you’re covered at work, what about your kids? Of course you know they’re always on the hunt for a snack by your perpetually empty kitchen. But what snack choices are they making when they are at school? I’m betting their school vending machines offer sugar drinks and candy or processed cheesy things. I’m also betting that your kid is spending the $2 you sent them to school with on that junk!
Solution: The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act was passed in 2010 which started the regulation of foods provided in schools to promote healthier options. Because of this policy change, Fresh Healthy Vending has started a school program to place their healthy vending machines in schools. This program is a win-win all around; schools receive a $500 bonus, plus 15% of the commissions of the machines on site, parents can put their minds at ease knowing their child can get apple slices over a candy bar and kids can be happy with the tasty selections!
With child obesity on an alarming rise, this couldn’t have come soon enough. Additionally, schools can find a quick, easy option to abide by the new nutrition regulations. Fresh Healthy Vending is the only company that will cater menus to the nutritional requirements of all 50 states. To get your school signed up go to: http://schools.freshvending.com.
You have to love the push Fresh Healthy Vending is making for healthier convenience snacking! I certainly believe in what they’re doing. Plus, choosing a healthier snack now may help you choose a healthier snack later at home! In fact, I’m enjoying some soy chips and a coconut water right now!
