Healthy Vending Machine Policy for State Agencies in Alabama

Description:

Although vending machines are convenient for employees to grab a snack during the work day, many are filled with low nutrient, high calorie food and beverages. Positive environmental changes can be made by replacing unhealthy options with more nutritious and healthful foods to support healthy behavior. The overall goal of this policy is to offer healthy choices while still allowing for free choice. The State of Alabama is committed to providing state employees and visitors with healthy options in vending machines to assist in leading a healthier lifestyle.
