Healthy Food Retail

Maintaining a healthy diet at work is easier said than done. While vending machines, cafeterias and concession stands are convenient options when it comes to a quick meal, typically these snack foods and beverages are high in sugar, sodium and calories – leaving employees feeling lethargic post-lunch.

The term “healthy vending” can refer to vending machines, concession stands and other food retail locations where packaged or prepared food is sold. New “healthy vending” policies aim to improve the nutritional quality of these foods and beverages and allow customers to make informed food choices. Healthy vending strategies include:

  • Limits on the amount of calories, saturated fat, sodium and added sugar in products
  • Requiring a percentage of products meet healthier nutrition guidelines
  • Preferential pricing for healthier products
  • Prime placement within vending machines and concession stands for healthier products
  • Marketing and other promotional efforts for healthier products

If you have implemented, or are interested in implementing healthy vending in your workplace, email gethealthy@snhd.org or call (702) 759-1270.

Programa “Tome las Escaleras”

Como dice el refrán – Los viejos hábitos SON difíciles de romper. Para la mayoría de las personas, montarse en el ascensor es un hábito viejo. ¡Algunas personas hasta se olvidan que hay escaleras! Poner letreros que motiven a la gente cerca de sitios donde tienen la opción entre las escaleras y el ascensor es un aspecto importante para animar a la gente a usar las ecaleras.
