Nutrition Q & A

What Should I Choose if a Vending Machine is My Only Food Option for a Quick Snack?

When you need to refuel between meals and a vending machine is your only option, look for foods that provide some nutrition, not just calories.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Small bag of pretzels, peanuts, almonds or trail mix
  • Fat-free or reduced-fat popcorn
  • Whole-wheat crackers with peanut butter or cheese
  • Whole grain granola or cereal bars
  • Graham or animal crackers
  • 100%  fruit or vegetable juice
  • Dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries, apricots
  • Microwaveable soup or oatmeal
