Balance, variety and moderation: the keys to healthy eating.
All foods, including snacks and carbonated beverages can fit into a healthy diet, according to the American Dietetic Association. Balance, variety and moderation are the keys to healthy eating - at work and at home. Today's vending machines offer a wide selection of foods and beverages. Along with snack foods and carbonated beverages, vending companies offer lower-fat snack items, fruit juices, bottled water and dairy products. Ameri-Vend offers a variety of healthy snack choices.
