Schools throughout the state of Michigan are working hard to create healthier nutrition environments for students. Whether you’re a parent, teacher, administrator, or community member, it is important to get involved in school-based initiatives targeting the health of our children. Healthy Vending can provide students and student athletes with better choices between meals.
The challenge for involved parents or guardians is to look past financial incentives provided by global brands, and put the nutritional needs of young adults first. The multi-national snack and soda companies rely heavily on corn based sweeteners, additives, salt, preservatives, and trans fat to boost flavor and increase sales. Healthy vending can offer appropriate portion sizes and whole foods to help kids get the energy they need without sacrificing nutritional value.
Bringing healthy vending to public school systems, private and public colleges and universities can be a challenging task. Contact us today to develop a strategy for moving to delicious whole foods and tasty beverages with plant based sweeteners and flavors.
