Write to the CEOs of vending machine companies today

You deserve healthier options where you and your family live, work, learn, play, and heal. When it comes to healthier snacking, momentum is building. We know that more and more food companies are offering healthier options.

Write to the CEOs of vending machine companies today! Tell them that you are interested in healthy snacks to fit your busy lifestyle.

There’s always an opportunity for companies to do better. A recent study found that Americans have been eating more snacks per day and more sodium from snacks over time (between 1977 and 2014). And, the increase of sodium from snacks is even more notable for non-Hispanic Black adults and children. The good news? Vending machine suppliers are beginning to offer greater varieties of healthy, convenient snacks – like whole grains in vending machines and fresh veggies in mini-markets.

You have the power! Vending machine companies need to hear that you want snacks that are reasonably priced, available, and promoted:

  • Aramark in its first year of partnering with AHA, has been able to reduce calories, saturated fat and sodium by an average of 8% across menus served in workplaces, hospital cafes and college & university residential dining halls. And they’ve committed to taking it down to 20% reduction by 2020.
  • Compass is working on incorporating more whole grains, fruit and vegetables into their offerings.
  • Sodexo aims to limit sodium and fat in their offerings.
  • Sysco has an eNutrition tool to provide nutrition information to customers.
