Why is having “Healthy Vending Machines” the hottest trend right now?
Have you ever noticed that most people are talking about or know someone who has talked about Healthy Vending Machines in recent times? Is this just a trend or more of a long term shift in thinking for the new-world workplaces?
Many businesses are now offering wider workplace policies and strategies focussing on the health and wellbeing of their employees. Some healthy workplace activities include walking meetings, healthy lifestyle information sessions, health check-ups and active lunchtime sporting events.
The workplace vending machine is also coming in for a revamp, a rebranding if you like. The Healthy Vending Machine is now focussing on products that are low calorie, low fat, gluten free and low sugar.
Not all the vending machine drink and snack favourites are history though. Employees are still adults and able to make their own informed decisions about healthy choices. So that means the cold can of coke drink, packet of salty chip snacks or mid-afternoon chocolate bar will still be there, probably just moved to a lesser visibility spot in the vending machine.
It has been said that just by swapping one vending snack or drink per week will have a measureable effect on your health and wellbeing including increased concentration, higher energy levels and improved efficiency at work.

These sites can work long hours or have access to dining options limited due to cafeteria locations or opening hours.

This also infers that vending machines of now indirectly contributing to an ever growing proportion of each person’s daily energy intake.
