As school administrators and teachers, work days begin LONG before the first bell rings.

You arrive early to prepare everything necessary for the day and stay late grading papers and filing paperwork. You spend most of your day and eat the majority of your meals at work.

Throughout the day, work and meals overlap. Sometimes a snack is all you have time for! Healthy snacks are available for schools and proven to make a difference for both teachers, administrators, and students.

Healthy snacks for staff result in overall improvement of health & well-being for the institution, not just students.

We provide options for healthy vending in schools not only to students, but to administrators and staff as well. If Administrators and staff don’t feel attentive, energetic, and healthy, our efforts to improve students’ academic performance will be for nothing.

Districts across the country are now mandated to provide healthy school vending options for students, but there are more reasons than that to choose better food for your students/teachers.

Students resort to eating lunch from the vending because it is easily accessible and more affordable. In a study conducted by the American Dietetic Association of 4,322 middle school students:

“eighteen percent of respondents reported purchasing a snack or beverage from a vending machine 2 or more days during the previous 5 school days instead of buying school lunch.”
