Making Change - A Guide to Healthier Vending Machines for Municipalities

Food Environment This US-based guide explores different options for municipalities looking to develop a healthy vending policy to improve the food environment for people working for, visiting, and being served by local government agencies. Sections of the guide explore: procurement; steps to implementing a healthy vending machine policy; working with partners; managing the project; various policy options; how to determine the proportion of healthy to non-healthy items; potential barriers; and putting the policy into effect. *Note: nutrition standards for vending machines should be based on Health Canada's nutrition guidance and the 'Eating Well with Canada's Food Guide.'
