Healthy Vending Machines

Vending machines have received a bad press in recent years because of the products they are normally associated with - typically fizzy drinks or crisps, sweets and chocolate, and because of the adverse effects of such products, particularly for children's health. This has led in many cases to vending machines being removed altogether from schools and other educational settings.

Intelligent Vending regards such measures as an extreme reaction. It's not the machine that may harm children, but the products they contain! There are many other, and healthier products, that can be used to stock vending machines and the range is increasing all the time. So, for example, fizzy and sugar laden drinks can be replaced by bottles of spring water or natural fruit juices. Chocolate bars and crisps can be replaced by cereal bars of bags of nuts or dried fruits. In reality, there may be no such thing as a totally healthy food, but there are many options that are much healthier than the traditional fare.

If you would like to explore some of the healthy vending options available, Intelligent Vending are here to help, both regarding machines and the type of product to stock. There is a false assumption that healthier foods are unattractive to many people, especially children, and are not economically viable in a vending environment. Product selection, footfall, appropriate branding, and installation location are key to successful healthy vending machines.

Healthier vending machines can operate successfully in any environment, but they are particularly suitable for schools, gyms and health care settings.
