Vending Machines With Healthier Foods

I can’t disagree that is definitely a great idea, however, them’s fightin’ words when you take away my Twix and M&Ms! 

Studies have consistently shown that when people eat healthy food, they increase productivity at work and get better test performance in students—while cutting the amount they cost the health care system. So it makes sense that businesses and schools would want to serve their community members healthy food whenever possible. But not every institution has as much cash to spend on nutrition as Google. Schools and businesses, in an effort to fill this need in a cost-effective way, have started to turn to healthier vending machines as an attractive options. And companies like H.U.M.A.N. Healthy Vending have eagerly stepped into the marketplace to try and meet the demand.

The results of the experiment so far have been positive. Customers like being able to get real food in convenient places.  And institutions have been glad to have a way to fulfill governmental nutrition guidelines without having to overhaul their entire food service systems.

That said, there are still some kinks to be worked out. Jon Stewart, for example, mocked the inclusion of plastic-wrapped bananas in the machines. And there are surely some kids who are miffed not to be able to get a Butterfingers on their way to algebra. Overall, though, it seems like a step in the right direction.
