Worksites

Healthy Food Retail

Businesses and organizations can play an important role in supporting healthy eating habits by promoting healthier food retail environments at their worksites, including vending machines, cafeterias, cafes and concession stands.

 

Healthy Vending Policies

The term "healthy vending" can refer to vending machines, concession stands, and other food retail locations where packaged or prepared food is sold. Although these are popular and convenient for snack foods and beverages, they are often a source of less than healthy products. Healthy vending policies are a proven strategy to improve the nutritional quality of foods and beverages available. Promotional efforts like point of purchase signs on vending machines and menu boards can increase awareness and selection of healthier options.

Healthy vending policies may include some or all of the following:

  • Limits on the amount of calories, saturated fat, sodium and added sugar in products
  • A percentage of products that will be required to meet healthier nutrition guidelines
  • Preferential pricing for healthier products
  • Prime placement within vending machines and concession stands for healthier products
  • Marketing and other promotional efforts for healthier products

If you are interested in implementing healthy vending in your workplace, email us at gethealthy@snhdmail.org or call us at (702) 759-1270.

Healthy Vending Initiative

In 2012, the Southern Nevada Health District developed and implemented a healthy vending policy in order to increase access to healthy food for our clients and employees. Our vending machines offer healthier options that meet nutritional guidelines which limit the total calories, added sugars, saturated fat and sodium of snack and beverage choices. Our policy also includes preferential pricing for snacks and beverages that meet nutritional guidelines.
