Low Sugar Vending Machines

If you’re on the hunt for a new vending machine supplier or are thinking of installing a new vending machine, it’s time to think about the recent sugar tax.

The sugar tax is the government’s latest step to fight obesity in the UK. Due to this new legislation it’s time to help your customers make better eating decisions and develop healthier eating habits. The emphasis of the sugar tax is on fizzy drinks and sodas, as they have little nutritional value and are popular with children.

Vending machines are in thousands of locations across the country, so it’s time to stock them with healthy alternatives.

Water Bottle vending machines

As fizzy drinks are going to be subjected to the new sugar tax, water bottles will be cheaper by comparison and a much healthier option for your customers.  

Healthy vending machine snacks

A can of fizzy drink can include 9 teaspoons of sugar which is a huge amount of a child’s recommended daily amount of sugar.

Many vending machines are filled with sugary drinks, sweets and chocolate. This is a problem if a person’s only source of food for a commute or a day at the office is a vending machine, as they will have no choice but to purchase an unhealthy item. This means that healthy snacks with lower sugar are essential when stocking up your vending machine. Including the option of tasty, nutritious and low sugar snacks is a way of promoting a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet.

Our healthy snacks with lower sugar include:

  • Cereal bars
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Granola bars
  • Popcorn

Lower sugar snacks and treats mean that employees and children can perform at their best, products with a high level of sugar can lead to sluggish behaviour and lower productivity.
