There are many advantages and disadvantages of having a vending machine in a public place. Most of us are used to walking past vending machines and grabbing a quick chocolate bar and a bottle of drink; similarly, more than 7 billion items are dispensed across the UK every year. A recent study found that 30% of respondents had used a vending machine in the last week; this means that vending machines are still a very popular method of purchasing food and drinks when on the go. They are highly convenient when you are in a rush, and they provide a range of brightly coloured and attractive snacks and drinks that look appealing, are reasonably priced and help you save time and effort when searching for something to fill your stomach.
Why are traditional vending machines bad for you?
Unfortunately, conventional vending machines are loaded with unhealthy snacks and sugary drinks. These may be enjoyable in small quantities; however, if you become dependent on your vending machine for your break times, then this can have a damaging effect on your health and well-being. Sugary snacks and drinks that are high in calories and low in nutrition are major factors in weight gain. They can cause tooth decay, poor bone health, gastrointestinal disorders and cardiovascular disease. Over time, you can develop insulin resistance and, eventually, diabetes. You must maintain a healthy diet from an early age to avoid such complications later on in life.
Research shows that here in the UK, obesity is common amongst children and adults despite the government taking many measures to promote healthy eating. Vending machines are an excellent way to promote better dietary choices. By replacing sugary snacks and drinks found in conventional vending machines with healthy, delicious snacks and drinks using one of our serviced vending machines London, you can promote better health and well-being. If presented with the option of a chocolate bar and a fizzy drink alongside fresh fruit and a smoothie, it is more than likely that most people will choose a chocolate bar and a fizzy drink. Eliminating the option of unhealthy snacks and drinks and filling a vending machine with delicious healthy choices can encourage people to eat better food and enjoy better health.
