It is very common today to have vending machines in schools, specifically in the middle and high school. Vending machines are a great way for students and staff to get that necessary refresher during the day, especially if they forgot lunch that day.
Studies have shown greater productivity and student attentiveness when stomachs are fuller. Obviously, this does not apply when snacks and soda are the sole types of food and drink to be consumed during the school day. A vending machine stocked with healthy choices is much more suitable for a school atmosphere.
When we think of vending machines, we might automatically turn to food machines. But calories don’t need to come from just food, keeping hydrated with healthy drinks is important too. The average student spends a lot of time each day moving about from class to locker and back to class again. Let’s not forget about physical education and after school sports.
Important To Stay Hydrated
When thirst is not quenched, dehydration can quickly become an issue. Drink vending machines are very important, but can become problematic when the drinks supplied are high in sugar and low in good calories.
The right drinks to remain hydrated include water, Gatorade, low sugar fruit juices, milk and orange juice.
Students will gravitate towards these healthy drinks when they are available. For quality vending machines and services, contact Orsino Vending today. We would be happy to discuss supplying your school with food and drink vending machines.
