Go! Vending and Concession Guidelines
A key strategy for obesity prevention is improving access to healthy foods and beverages. Unfortunately, it can be difficult at times to find healthy options when on the go. Vending machines offer the convenience of a quick snack, but the selection of healthy options can be limited. Applying nutrition standards for foods and beverages in vending machines can improve access to healthier selections.
The USDA has also listed standards for food sold in schools. These standards can be found here.
