Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) March 30, 2015
National Nutrition Month is an ideal time for Americans to take stock of their eating habits and commit to nutritious decisions that will affect their productivity today and long-term health in the future. According to a recent study from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), almost 20% of daily calorie intake comes from snack food. Making healthy snack choices needs to be an essential piece of a well-balanced diet, even for a busy society constantly on the go.
Each day, millions of Americans turn to traditional vending machines full of chips, candy, cookies and soda for their mid-day pick-me-up or to replace a meal. However, healthy vending options are becoming more visible and increasing in popularity as companies like HealthyYOU Vending provide convenient, healthy vending machines featuring nutritious, organic, low-fat, low-calorie, gluten-free and kosher options.
“Americans are more nutrition-conscious than ever before. They’re eating healthier at home and then looking for those same options when they leave the house,” says HealthyYOU Vending Owner Mike Burnett. He said that today’s health revolution is fueling the growth of their healthy vending machines as consumers look for healthy eating options at work, school, and in their communities.
Convenient access to healthy snacks is an essential piece of the healthy snacking puzzle, as people tend to consume more of the foods that are readily available. “Healthy snacks can provide a boost of energy, anytime and anywhere,” said Burnett. “An on-site HealthyYOU machine stocked with nutritious, organic, low-fat, low-calorie, gluten-free or kosher options provides the ultimate in convenience and healthy snacking choices.” He said they provide their distributors with over 1,100 different healthy products to choose from, and that each HealthyYOU machine holds 21 different snack selections.
Consumers can make small yet impactful changes by incorporating simple, healthy snacking habits that make calories count. Burnett’s tips for healthy snacking include:
- Plan healthy snacks to reduce the temptation of junk food when bored or stressed.
- Only snack when hungry.
- Practice portion control by snacking on single-size servings (another great benefit to choosing snacks from a HealthyYOU Vending machine).
- Stay hydrated, as overeating is often a result of thirst rather than hunger.
Making healthy snacking choices works best when convenient choices are available. A HealthyYOU Vending machine conveniently provides healthier snack and drink options to employees, students and consumers. Find out how to get HealthyYOU Vending at your school or place of business.
