Nutritional Guidelines for Vending Machines in BC Public Buildings
The Nutritional Guidelines for Vending Machines in B.C. Public Buildings aim to increase healthier food choices in vending machines. The guidelines define which prepackaged foods should be sold most, sold sometimes or not sold based on their ingredients and nutritional content. The guidelines are mandatory for vending machines in B.C. Public Buildings, such as hospitals, universities and government buildings. Other organizations with vending machines or concessions, such as municipal recreation and community centers, are strongly encouraged to adopt this standard for prepackaged food and beverages.
