Portland, OR (PRWEB) October 03, 2014
School leaders across the country are offering healthier snack and beverage products in vending machines. But a challenge to wellness still exists. Most vending machines do not provide nutrition and ingredient information prior to the purchase. To provide access to this important data, a new 4.5-inch touchscreen device called VendScreen™ is now available that can be quickly and cost-effectively added to vending machines.
In addition to accepting debit and credit card payments, VendScreen touchscreens dynamically display ingredients and nutritional profiles. This data is continuously updated in a cloud-based database of information on thousands of snack and beverage products. The devices can be programmed to showcase the healthiest choices available.
“Many school administrators are not aware that their vending operators can quickly and easily add these devices to their machines,” said David Grano, president and CEO of VendScreen. “Nutrition needs are unique to each student and food allergies are a concern for many children. Having access to the complete profile and ingredient list for snacks and beverages prior to purchase is vital.”
VendScreen's payment touchscreens are an ideal choice for school leaders who are implementing the USDA's new Smart Snack in School program that requires all foods provided during the school day to meet nutrition standards, including items sold in vending machines. The nutrition data provided by VendScreen's touchscreens far exceeds impending Affordable Care Act mandates, which require vending machines to disclose only the calories of each product.
