The advantages of healthy vending machines
Updated: Jan 19
Traditional vending machines
There are more than half a million vending machines here in the UK which are used to purchase more than 7 billion items a year. The majority of vending machines are loaded with chocolate bars, crisps and fizzy drinks. These are detrimental to our health, but when there are no other options they are cheap, quick, convenient and tasty. Obesity is already a major issue here in the UK. Unhealthy snacks and junk food make up more than a third of our daily nutritional intake and contribute to the ongoing dilemma of adolescents and adults being overweight and suffering from obesity and other related issues. Foods high in salt, sugar and unsaturated fats also cause diabetes, cardiovascular disease and even cancer. These foods not only affect our physical wellbeing, but they also have a huge detrimental impact on our mental health and wellbeing. Being obese and overweight can cause depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, loss of self-confidence and an overall negative outlook on life.
The importance of a healthy diet
A healthy diet is key to a positive outlook and overall wellbeing. A well-balanced, healthy and nutritious diet promotes healthier, longer life and the ability to fight illnesses and diseases later on. By promoting healthy eating we will promote better health for ourselves and for our future generations.
