Healthy eating on the go with vending machines

It is important to maintain a healthy diet that is well-balanced and nutritious for good health and overall well-being. A healthy diet allows our body to function effectively and helps prevent a range of diseases. Our choice of food and drink can cause a range of life-threatening illnesses, including cardiovascular disease, obesity, type II diabetes and even cancer. By making the right food choices, you can prevent these illnesses and enjoy good health in the future; this means eating a variety of foods but limiting your intake of salt, sugars and saturated fats. In doing so, not only will you lower your risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and even some cancers, but you will also be able to enjoy healthy digestion, a strong immune system, healthy skin, teeth, bones and eyes and better health and well-being in general.

Food on the go

If we are at home, we often enjoy a fresh, homemade, healthy meal. When we are out and about, in a rush and looking for a quick snack or a drink, we tend to choose the wrong foods. Vending machines are conveniently located to catch our eyes when we find ourselves in such a situation. Traditional vending machines are loaded with sugary and salty snacks that are high in saturated fat and low in nutrition; this includes chocolate bars, crisps and fizzy drinks. They can be found when you are hungry or in need of a quick snack, and with bright colours and lights, they often look attractive and can be difficult to resist. If the same vending machine is full of healthy snacks and drinks, it is likely that you will still purchase from that vending machine. Rather than picking a chocolate bar, a packet of crisps or a fizzy drink, you will choose a healthy snack or drink that is good for you and will leave you feeling full and satisfied rather than sluggish and tired afterwards. This is the effect of unhealthy snacks and drinks; they may taste delicious at first, but afterwards, either you need more of the same food or you feel tired and lazy until you have something else.

If you have traditional vending machines in your office, educational institute, factory, waiting area, entertainment venue or other public space you need to change them sooner rather than later and replace them with healthy vending machines. Healthy vending machines provide the same convenience as traditional vending machines however they replace unhealthy snacks with delicious healthy treats, meal options and drinks that are beneficial for your health and well-being. These products will be packed full of fruits, vegetables, vitamins and minerals, promoting healthy digestion, energy, better productivity, and improved mood and positivity in general in comparison to chocolate bars, crisps and fizzy drinks that can harm your health, body and mood. Speak to us at The Jar today and find out more about replacing your vending machine with healthy vending machines and promoting better health and well-being for the people around you.
