Healthy food vending machines
Whilst the healthy food vending machine is a relatively new idea for many workplaces, it is proving to be an incredibly popular addition for many companies, not only with the company themselves but also with their employees who are delighted to have the choice of something a little different.
Vending solutions for healthy eating come in a range of different sizes, making the ideal choice for breakout areas, canteens and even those offices with limited space. They can be placed alongside any coffee vending machines that you might already have in place, to offer your employees a wider range of snacks and beverages during the working day.

Best snacks for healthy vending machines
A fantastic alternative to the fruit office delivery, healthy vending machines are a relatively new concept from vending companies, with some fantastic offerings like the Samba touch vending machine becoming a very popular choice. These machines offer a range of healthy snacks from popular brands such as Kind, Propercorn, Huel, Grenade, Nakd, Eat Real and Moma. The Samba touch vending machine allows users to see the nutritional value of any products that they might be interested in before they make their final selection, this is incredibly popular with those individuals who are following any form of calorie or macro-based diet.
Why offices are choosing healthy vending machines
Studies have shown that snacks that are high in sugar, fat or salt are not a great way to combat the mid-afternoon slump in productivity. In fact, quite the opposite; they can in fact make you rather sluggish, making it difficult to concentrate. And this can have a negative effect on productivity levels. It isn’t just this drop in productivity levels that is driving more offices to choose a healthy office vending machine option, but rather requests from their employees who are trying to be healthier.
One option available to companies is the fruit office delivery which sees them taking delivery of fresh fruit on a regular basis – this fruit is placed in the break area and can be accessed by all their staff. Unfortunately, this option isn’t incredibly practical for many offices and can, unfortunately, result in a lot of fruit going off before it can be eaten. Healthy vending machines and micro-markets allow employers to offer a range of healthier foods to their employees, that are either packaged for longer life or in the case of micro-markets, can be replenished daily.
This increase in the popularity of the healthier vending machine comes at a time when employers are realising that it is also more beneficial to their employees to offer them break out areas; these are specific areas away from their desk where they can take a short break, visit the office coffee machines, grab a healthy snack and even have a chat with colleagues before returning to their desks refreshed and ready to work.
