Healthy Vending Machines Are Beginning To Catch On

September 1, 2010: 07:21 AM EST
Vending machines have entered a new era, veering from junk food to healthier snacks and beverages. It’s taken awhile, because healthy snacks were scarce and not particularly in demand. But schools and offices can now install vending machines stocked with foods that are nutritious, organic — or at least slightly healthier than conventional snacks. Canadian firm Brokerhouse Distributors has provided about 100 machines in the country since 2007 that are very different from the drab vending stations of the past: they feature pictures of blue sky, green grass and happy children. The machines offer V8 Splash, 2 percent milk, bottled water, carrots and dip. In the U.S., All Brands Vending Resource machines sell foods low in fat, sugar and carbohydrates, and without synthetic ingredients, trans fats, or artificial colors and flavors.
