Healthy Vending Machine Alternatives in New York City

Healthy Vending Machine Options in New York City

Vending machines are here to stay. As of 2018, there are 1.3 million snack vending machines in the United States that offer primarily high-calorie snacks. This is a problem for the almost 40 percent of adults and 18 percent of children who are considered obese. Obesity, a serious medical condition, is known to cause heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high triglycerides and cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, stroke, and multiple types of cancer.

One way researchers are trying to convince New York City consumers to eat healthier is to include a 25-second time delay on vending machines that encourages the consumer to make a healthier choice before the vending machine releases the traditional snack from the vending machine. Brad Appelhans, PhD, a clinical psychologist at the Rush University Prevention Center and lead investigator of the study relayed that the “delay yielded a 2 percent to 5 percent increase in the proportion of total purchases from healthy snacks.” The success of this approach stems from the fact that humans prefer immediate gratification, and immediate gratification influences choices and behavior.   

But this isn’t the only way to encourage New York City consumers to make healthy choices. Rather than creating an environment where individuals need to be psychologically encouraged to make healthy decisions, Healthy Vending provides only all-natural and organic beverage and snack alternatives that are great tasting and enjoyable.

Healthy Vending Machine Options in New York City

With vending machine technology that allows consumers to read the nutritional facts about a specific healthy snack or beverage before making a selection, New York City consumers can feel certain that they have made a good choice. Their wallets will also be happy as the majority of our healthy snacks and beverages are equal in price to unhealthy traditional options. It’s a double bonus—a happy waistline and a happy wallet.

Don’t forget to include students. They also need healthy vending machine snack and beverage choices while at school. Rather than hoping that they will make a healthy beverage choice, offer great-tasting beverages that don’t have large amounts of sugar or artificial sweeteners to go with a healthy snack. Together, Healthy Vending and your New York City school district will customize a list of healthy options to ensure that all items sold meet or exceed the minimum nutritional standards established by the USDA School Food Service Program.

Help your New York City employees or students make healthy vending machine choices. Be upfront with them about your break room goals and the importance of their health.

Vending Machine Technology in New York City

Vending Machine Technology in New York City

The days of using quarters, dimes, and nickels to purchase a snack or beverage from a vending machine are gone. Today, New York City consumers only need their smartphone to make a purchase at one of Healthy Vending’s technologically advanced vending machines. What makes their vending machine so advanced? The answer is its 6 innovative and efficient technologies: Payrange, The Mind™, Vend Screen, Mobile Vending Request App, Energy Star, and Vending Miser.

Vend Screen is an interactive touch screen located on each vending machine that enables New York City employees and students to use mobile payments and access product information.  

Payrange is a tool that allows vending machines to accept mobile payments, or as Payrange says, “Swipe up and go™.” User benefits from a fast and convenient experience since the user prefunds their account, and an increase in ADA compliance because the user does not have to touch the machine to use it. Vending machine operators also benefit from the technology as the New York City consumer’s smartphone makes and pays for the cellular connection. This eliminates monthly fees and the cost of hardware for the operator. Maintenance issues are also reduced as physical contact with the vending machine is decreased.

The Mind™ is an easy to use tool accessed via the touch screen on each vending machine that provides users with nutritional and ingredient information before choosing a healthy snack or beverage. It’s as simple as touching a thumbnail of the product or entering the product ID on the screen. Vending operators can easily update product information as well as display public announcements, healthy lifestyle tips, and product promotions.

Mobile Vending Request App is a cloud-based mobile app service that simplifies the process for reporting service issues. The technologies combines the mobile app with QR codes located on each of Healthy Vending’s New York City vending machines. If a user has a problem, they scan the QR code on the vending machine, and the problem is instantaneously reported. Other customer service features include requesting new products, making customer service inquiries, reporting machine issues, leaving feedback, and connecting with us on social media.

Vending Machine Technology in New York City

Vending machines that meet Energy Star ratings cost less to operate and use less overall energy. Installing light-emitting diode (LED) light bulbs and motion sensors further decreases energy consumption and energy costs. The U.S. Department of Energy states that “today’s LED bulbs can be six-seven times more energy efficient than conventional incandescent lights and cut energy use by more than 80 percent.”

The machines also use a product called Vending Miser. It monitors the number of people around the vending machine as well as any ambient temperature changes to use right amount of power to maintain the correct product temperature. Less lighting and fewer compression cycles decreases energy usage and costs for New York City employers and schools.

Snacks in New York City Play Multiple Roles

Healthy Snacks in New York City

The definition of a snack is expanding. It no longer refers only to a small amount of sweet or salty food eaten between meals. A snack can also be a healthy meal replacement that helps New York City employees meet their daily caloric and hydration needs. All snacks, independent of their role, fall into one or more of three primary needs: nourishment, optimization, and pleasure.

Accurate and clearly written product labels play an important part before snacks and beverages are even consumed. For 39 percent of U.S. consumers, inaccurate or confusing information on a product label will trigger a switch to a product that has clearer and more accurate product information. Additionally, 68 percent of the participants in a Nielson study said they would pay more for snacks, beverages, and prepared food items that weren’t made with “bad” ingredients. Fresh, organic, clean, and Fair Trade are just a few of the terms New York City employees are looking for in the office breakroom.

Sweet or Salty Treat

I have some good news for you. Traditional sweet and salty snacks are not going anywhere. In 2017, the sale of chocolate-based treats produced over $1.8 billion in revenue, or 74.9 percent of the total sales for candy. On the salty side of the aisle, $2.9 billion in revenue came from the sale of chips. That’s 46.6 percent of sales in its category. Clean, organic, and “better”  ingredients play an influence here too. While sweet and salty snacks are most often consumed as a reward or indulgence, many New York City employees also use a trip to the office break room vending machine as an opportunity to enjoy new flavors and textures.

Certain snacks have always and will continue to play the role of a sweet or salty treat, but in 2018, many snacks have a new purpose.

Healthy Snacks in New York City

Healthy Meal Replacement

According to the NPD Group’s tracking of U.S. consumers’ snacking attitudes and behaviors, “snack foods eaten at main meals now represent 24 percent of all snack food eatings, which is up from 21 percent five years ago.”  Not only are New York City employees looking for nourishment and optimization (a mental or physical energy boost), they have high expectations about the quality of product labels and the ingredients that they put in their bodies. A snack with healthy ingredients that fulfills nutritional needs, keeps an employee hydrated, and improves mental focus positively impacts that individual’s health as well as increases creativity and productivity. It’s a win-win for everyone.

A healthy vending machine in your office breakroom offers your New York City employees a wide range of healthy, sweet and salty snacks, and beverages that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. Not only is the office breakroom a place to grab a bite to eat, but it is also a relaxing environment to catch up with colleagues during the workday.

New York City, Are You Ready for the Next Generation of Sparkling Bottled Water?

Bottled Water in New York CityNestlé Waters North America certainly hopes so as they get ready to debut a new and updated line of sparkling bottled water from their regional spring water brands: Poland Spring®, Deer Park®, Zephyrhills®, Ozarka®, Ice Mountain® and Arrowhead® in office breakrooms around the country. Not only will there be new flavors, but there will also be a new bottle design and packaging and the introduction of a new versatile size—the 12 oz. can.  

Antonio Sciuto, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Nestlé Waters North America recently explained that “the sparkling water category is now mature enough for us to make a significant investment in developing this extensive line of mainstream sparkling offerings from our regional spring water brands, each of which is the top-selling still spring water brand in its market.” Just as with Nestlé Waters North America’s other products found in the office vending machine, the new sparkling bottled water will begin by sourcing real, natural spring water. Natural fruit flavors and added carbonation will round out the ingredient list to create a refreshing and delicious beverage.

Deciding which flavor of sparkling bottled water to choose may be the most challenging decision your New York City employees have to make. Ten new flavors including Lively Lemon, Lemon Lime, Zesty Lime, Orange, Triple Berry, Summer Strawberry, Raspberry Lime, Black Cherry, Pomegranate Lemonade, and Simply Bubbles will be available to choose from. And as always, each beverage will be calorie-free, sugar-free, and free of artificial colors.   

Bottled Water in New York City

Newly designed packaging will create an improved tactile and vibrant visual experience. In addition to offering the sparkling bottled water in 12 oz. cans—the preferred container for some New York City consumers—a new bottle design will be available. The new bottle will resemble vintage glass, be more comfortable to hold, and highlight the movement of sparkling bubbles. Each PET bottle will include an eye-catching label with vibrant and colorful fruit graphics, as well as a colored cap that will help consumers recognize the brand faster.

Don’t forget to offer healthy snacks along with that bottle of cool, naturally fruit-flavored sparkling water. It’s important to keep your New York City employees satiated as well as hydrated. To learn more about adding sparkling bottled water to your office break room beverage lineup, call Healthy Vending at 917.572.3671. We would love to help update your current vending machine offerings.

New York City Consumers Prefer Bottled Water

Bottled Water in New York City

For the first time in history, bottled water is the No.1 packaged beverage in the United States (by volume). People are shifting away from less healthy packaged drinks and choosing the healthy option—bottled water.

-Jill Culora, International Bottled Water Association (IBWA), Vice President of Communications

According to a recent study by the IBWA, more than 63 percent of Americans choose bottled water as their beverage of choice. And 94 percent of Americans believe that bottled water is healthier than soft drinks. But what exactly does the phrase ‘bottled water’ mean? The definition is more complex than it might initially seem.

Per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), bottled water is a consumer food product; which means that strict standards of identity must be followed in order to legally call a bottle filled with water ‘bottled water’. The FDA requires that the “type” of water must be clearly printed on the label of all bottled water sold in the United States. To understand the FDA’s classifications, it is important to know the following terms.

Spring Water: “Derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface, this water must be collected only at the spring or through a borehole that taps the underground formation feeding the spring. If some external force is used to collect the water through a borehole, the water must have the same composition and quality as the water that naturally flows to the surface.”

Bottled Water in New York City

Purified Water: “Bottled water that has been treated by distillation, reverse osmosis, or another suitable process may meet standards that allow it to be labeled as “purified water.””

Mineral Water: “This water comes from an underground source and contains at least 250 parts per million total dissolved solids. Minerals and trace elements must come from the source of the underground water. They cannot be added later.”

Artesian Water/Artesian Well Water: “This water is collected from a well that taps an aquifer—layers of porous rock, sand, and earth that contain water—which is under pressure from surrounding upper layers of rock or clay. When tapped, the pressure in the aquifer, commonly called artesian pressure, pushes the water above the level of the aquifer, sometimes to the surface. Other means may be used to help bring the water to the surface.”

Well Water: “This is water from a hole bored or drilled into the ground, which taps into an aquifer.”

Understanding the different water sources and methods of extraction will help New York City employees answer questions about the taste, quality, and safety of a specific type of water. This is especially important as 82 percent of Americans think they should drink more water and 90 percent believe that bottled water is a healthy and convenient beverage.

To help your New York City employees stay hydrated and healthy, make sure to include bottled water in your office break room vending machine. Try offering healthy snacks with healthy beverages at a reduced cost. It not only keeps everyone hydrated and satiated, but it’s also a great moral booster.

Healthy Vending in New York City Continues to Grow

Healthy Vending ChoicesHave you noticed that the availability of healthy vending machine options in New York City continues to increase? Traditional snacks and beverages have given way to vegetable chips, protein bars, and naturally flavored water. The catalyst for these changes doesn’t stem from a single event. Instead, multiple perspectives unwittingly met to produce an increase in demand for healthy vending machine snacks and beverages.

Two of those perspectives are a concern about the increase in obesity rates in the United States and a demand for more nutritionally sound and sustainable snacks and beverages. In order to learn more about a specific product, greater visibility of important information needed to occur.

Industry Requirements

In 2016, obesity rates in the state of New York were 25.5% for adults and 31.8% for children ages 10 to 17. Because of an on-going increase in country-wide obesity rates, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) determined that consumers (both adults and children) needed to be able to easily locate the nutritional information of a vending machine snack or beverage. As a result, new vending machine labeling requirements about the placement of the nutrition label on items purchased from vending machines were developed. Today, caloric information is visible on “vending machine foods for which the Nutrition Facts label cannot be examined before purchase or for which visible nutrition information is not otherwise provided at the point of purchase” (https://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceRegulation/GuidanceDocumentsRegulatoryInformation/ucm513910.htm).

Healthy Vending Choices

Consumer Demands

Many snack and beverage manufacturers, however, have decided to include more information about their healthy vending machine products than the FDA requires. Clear product labeling lets the New York City consumer know what the ingredients are, how many calories are in it, if the ingredients are organic, non-GMO, or vegan, or if the snack or beverage is Fair Trade certified.

The following list defines a few of the terms consumers are looking for when deciding whether or not to purchase an item.

  • Organic: “certified organic foods are grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, and use of additives.” (from the USDA article, “Organic 101: What the USDA Organic Label Means”)
  • GMO-Free: products were grown or made without any genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
  • Sustainable:”production of food, fiber, or other plant or animal products using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare” (from http://www.sustainabletable.org/246/sustainable-agriculture-the-basics)
  • Fair Trade: a “model of sustainable, ethical trade that puts people and planet first.” (from https://www.fairtradecertified.org/why-fair-trade)
  • Vegan: a vegan snack is one that does not contain any animal-based ingredients including meat (including fish, shellfish and insects), dairy, eggs and honey

The healthy vending industry offers convenient options that not only meet federal requirements, but also provide nutritious and sustainably-grown ingredients. To learn more about providing your New York City employees or students with healthy options, call Healthy Vending at 917.572.3671. We look forward to hearing from you.

Bottled Water: It’s Healthy for You and New York City

Bottled Water in New York City

The relationship between the bottled water industry and New York City consumers has had its ups and downs. But recent news from the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) is good news for everyone. A recent study found that bottled water now has the lowest water footprint of all packaged drinks, using a total of 1.32 liters of water, including the 1 liter of consumable water, to produce a 1-liter bottle product.

Environmental Impact

To decrease the amount of water used, the amount of energy spent, and the amount of plastic materials needed for the production of bottled water, the bottled water industry has developed new and innovative ways to decrease the number of resources spent. According to the IBWA, some of the changes include:

  • “Auditing total water use at bottled water facilities,
  • Reducing groundwater extraction through improved water processing and bottling processes,
  • Looking for leaks in all of their piping and tanks,
  • Planting drought-resistant vegetation at bottling facilities,
  • Reminding employees to be good stewards of the environment and encouraging water conservation,
  • Implementing water use restrictions at their facilities,
  • Implementing ultra-efficient cleaning methods inside plants to reduce water usage when cleaning reusable 3- and 5-gallon bottles for water coolers used in homes and offices,
  • Reducing the use of cleaners when sterilizing water pipes, storage tanks, and finished products,
  • Managing water withdrawals in a manner that ensures the long-term viability of the watershed, [and]
  • Using hydro-geological evaluations on springs to assess any potential impact on local groundwater levels and stream flows.”

The result is an industry that uses fewer natural resources, creates less waste, and produces one of America’s most purchased packaged drinks. As Jill Culora, IBWA’s vice president of communications, said, “consumers who are drinking bottled water instead of other packaged drinks are making a healthy choice—and also reducing the impact on the environment.”

Bottled Water in New York City

Health Benefits

Water offers multiple health benefits to those in New York City who drink it. According to the Centers for Disease Control, water helps to regulate body temperature, lubricate and cushion joints, and protect the spinal cord. Kathleen M. Zelman, MPH, RD, LD, the director of nutrition at WebMD, writes that water keeps our body hydrated which helps all of its systems to function properly, decreases muscle fatigue which can contribute to poor performance, and helps skin to stay hydrated and healthy.

Unfortunately, most of us don’t drink nearly enough water to make up for the water that we lose every day, which can lead to dehydration. Side effects of dehydration include lack of energy and fatigue. To combat dehydration, the Mayo Clinic recommends that men drink about 13 cups or 3 liters of beverages per day, and women drink about 9 cups or 2.2 liters per day. Additionally, researchers at the University of Illinois determined that the more water a person drank, the fewer overall calories that person consumed. For most individuals, a decrease in calories, even by a small amount, can positively impact long-term health.  

Do your New York City employees or students enjoy water as a pick-me-up during the day? If so, be sure to include bottled water in the office break room or school lunchroom vending machine. For the ultimate employee bonus, consider covering part or all of the cost of healthy vending machine snacks and beverages.

For more information about customizing your current vending machine options, or adding new healthy vending machines to your office break room or school lunchroom, contact Healthy Vending at 917.572.3671.

New York City, Choose Healthy Snacks and Beverages in 2018

Healthy Snacks and Beverages in New York City

Deciding to “go healthy” is a lot easier than it once was as healthy snacks and beverages can be found almost everywhere from the corner store to the office break room vending machine. While the definition of “healthy” varies from person to person, the availability and variety of choices New York City consumers have to choose from keeps expanding. Recent research by Grand View Research, Inc., a market research and consulting company, projects that “the global organic food and beverage market is expected to reach USD 320.5 billion by 2025.”

Now, that is a lot of healthy snacks and beverages to choose from!

The challenge is finding one’s way through all of the choices. Two of the largest projected segments New York City consumers will be looking for include non-GMO products and organic fruits and vegetables. To be able to make an educated decision, it is important to understand what organic and non-GMO mean, and the benefits of purchasing not only organic fruits and vegetables but also products made from organic fruits, vegetables, and grains.

What does non-GMO mean?

Before understanding non-GMO, it is important to know what GMO means. The Non-GMO Project, a nonprofit organization, writes that “genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.” So, a non-GMO product is a product that is grown or made without any GMOs.

Ongoing research continues to find evidence that connects GMOs to health problems, environmental damage, and violation of farmers’ and consumers’ rights. However, there have been no long-term studies completed that examine whether or not consuming GMOs is actually safe. At this point, it is up to the individual New York City consumer to make their own decision about GMOs.

Healthy Snacks and Beverages in New York City
What does organic mean?

For any type of food to be labeled organic, it must have been grown or farmed without the use of artificial chemicals, hormones, antibiotics or GMOs. Different rules apply to growing crops (grains, fruits and vegetables) versus raising animals. Per NSF International, crops are to be “grown, handled and processed without the use of pesticides or other synthetic chemicals, irradiation, fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or bioengineering [GMOs].”

One of the primary benefits of choosing organic grains, fruits, and vegetables, or healthy snacks and beverages made from them is the lack of pesticides, which have been proven to be harmful to humans. The adverse health effects of pesticides include: cancer, immune or nervous system damage, increased risk for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, fertility issues, depression,  ADHD in kids, and respiratory problems.  

Unfortunately, organic fruits and vegetables are not always readily available when New York City consumers are on-the-go. A great way to help your employees have access to organic choices when fresh produce isn’t available is to offer organic snacks and beverages in the office break room vending machine. Refueling and/or re-hydrating plus a healthy choice equals a win for everyone.

It’s time to create more winning opportunities in your office break room. Whether you’d like to add more healthy snacks and beverages, offer Free Vending, or completely overhaul your current vending machine selections, Healthy Vending can help. Call us at 917.572.3671 to get started.

Healthier Vending Machine Beverages in New York City

Healthy Vending Options in New York City

Vending machine technology is only one of the many aspects of the vending industry that has changed a lot since the first bottled soft drink machines, cooled with ice, appeared on the market in the 1930’s. Which beverages New York City consumers want to buy have also undergone several makeovers.

Diet sodas, for example, were first mass produced during the 1960’s and enjoyed a seemingly positive reputation until the early 2000’s when sales started to decline. The shift in opinion began as New York City consumers learned more about diet soda’s ingredients and understood that those ingredients were actually chemicals that were dangerous to their health.

Today, medical professionals have a better understanding about the downsides of consuming diet soda. Keri Glassman, R.D.N., at Women’s Health shares, “It [diet soda] is filled with unhealthy chemicals, including artificial sweeteners, which actually make[s] you crave more calories later” and contributes to weight gain.  

However, diet soda alone doesn’t cause all weight gain. Cara Harbstreet, R.D., of Street Smart Nutrition says, “Consumers of diet soda who engage in other lifestyle behaviors associated with poor health outcomes are at a greater risk than those who balance their intake of diet soda with other healthful habits.The variables make it difficult to pinpoint whether diet soda consumption alone is the cause of negative health outcomes, or whether it’s the culmination of a number of factors…nothing in nutrition or health exists in a vacuum.”

Healthy Vending Options in New York City

As 2017 comes to a close, it is important to consider other habits that play a role in developing health-related issues such as not exercising, smoking, consuming too many sweets, and diet or regular soda instead of water, and not sleeping enough. The following are a few health issues that can happen as a result of doing either too much of a bad thing or not enough of a good thing.

  • not exercising enough: increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, high blood pressure, depressions, osteoporosis, bone fractures, and more sick days
  • smoking: higher risk of developing lung cancer, COPD including emphysema and chronic bronchitis, and worsening asthma
  • eating and/or drinking too much sugar: greater risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, heart attack, stroke, cavities, depression, joint pain, and an increase in wrinkles and saggy skin
  • not getting enough water: causes headaches, dry mouth, eyes, and skin, disorientation, low energy levels, muscle cramps or spasms, hunger, and mood swings
  • not getting enough sleep: increased risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, heart failure, stroke, obesity, depression, lack of alertness, impaired memory, mood swings, and an increased chance of having a car accident

So, as 2018 is quickly approaching, individuals should focus on exercising, getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, and consuming healthy vending machine snack and beverage choices. But don’t forget to enjoy a special treat every once in awhile.

To help your New York City employees and students make healthy choices during the work or school day, offer a wide variety of healthy snacks and beverages in the office break room or school lunchroom vending machine. Not only will it positively impact your employees’ and students’ health, but it will also help maintain high energy levels and increase productivity. That’s a win-win for everyone.

For more information about adding healthy options to your current vending machines or creating the ultimate break room in 2018, call Healthy Vending at 917.572.3671. We’d love to help.
