Make the vending machines in your workplace healthier

Many workplaces and institutions now have vending machines. Often healthy choices are limited or non-existent in vending machines.

The HOVER project was undertaken by Eat Well Tasmania Inc. several years ago, however what we learned and the tools we developed are still being used and highly relevant today.

HOVER is an acronym for Healthier Options for Vending – Employer Resource.

The Step by Step HOVER Guide shows you how to make your workplace or organisations vending machine choices healthier, so all tastes are catered for and popular with purchasers, to keep the machine profitable.

There is a range of information to help you get started:

  • Understand the benefits of encouraging healthy eating in workplaces.
  • Try the HOVER calculator to quickly assess food to include in your healthier vending machine.
  • If you are a health professional you may like to review the frequently asked questions fact sheet.
