Healthy Vending

Eating "Healthy" From a Vending Machine? Surely, You Jest!

Between classes to attend, jobs to fill, projects to complete, kids to raise, dogs to walk, mothers to call!

You get the idea. Everyone has a lot on their plate. And with such a hectic schedule, it can be tough to find food that's both fast AND nutritious.

So you turn to a typical vending machine. Chocolate candies? They won't balance the nutritional deficit you experienced from skipping lunch. What about a root beer? No, you'll crash within an hour of chugging. What about that snack? Is it high in fat? Even if nutrition labels were decipherable under normal conditions, they're certainly impossible to read from the outside of a vending machine.

Don't surrender to this frustrating routine. Instead, give yourself a full vending arrangement from Fiesta Food Services. In addition to tasty low-fat snacks packed with good stuff like whole grains and protein and 100% fruit juices to keep you feeling satisfied, our Fresh and Frozen Food Vending Service offers a wide selection of more substantial nutritious fare like entrees, salads, sandwiches--even fresh fruits & vegetables!

A vending arrangement with Fiesta Food Services is your go-to for a quick and nourishing pick-me-up; not a disappointing last resort.

Fit Pick: Energize Your Vending!

Fiesta has teamed up with the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) to bring our clients the vital benefits of their revolutionary Fit Pick program.

Part of the organization's Balanced for Life program, Fit Pick takes the guesswork out of eating healthy on the go by helping schools and workplaces clearly labeling vendor products that meet specific nutrition guidelines with a nationally recognized identification system.

They even include helpful machine accessories that explain the nutrition standard while further educating consumers about the elements of a balanced diet and the importance of physical activity.

The flexible Fit Pick program allows you to choose from two different nutrition standards that can be implemented depending on your needs:

  • Fit Pick Standard 35-10-35:
    Identifies products with not more than 35% of their calories from fat, not more than 10% from saturated fat, and not more than 35% of the total weight from sugar (nuts and seeds excluded).
  • Alliance for a Healthier Generation Standard:
    Popular with schools, their standard begins with the 35-10-35 guidelines and then adds caps on sodium and calories. This standard meets California guidelines for schools.

Don't be left behind!

Over 1,215 organizations are already registered for the Fit Pick healthy vending program. Join Fiesta Food Services and NAMA, leaders in promoting health and wellness solutions that work.
