Guideline to Healthier Drinks

When choosing products for your snack and drink machines, you want to choose a good mixture of healthy and comfortable items. In recent years, consumers have grown to be more health conscious when it comes to drinks and snacks; therefore, putting healthier options in your El Paso drink machine is the way to go. Read below for some guidelines to keep in mind when choosing products for a drink machine. 

  • For drinks to qualify as a healthy beverage, they must comply with the following:
    • Low-calorie beverages, no more than 60 calories. 
    • Carbonated or plain water.
    • 100% fruit juice with no added sugars. 
    • Plain/unflavored 1% milk. 
    • No-calorie beverages. 
    • Flavored/unflavored non-fat milk or alternatives (soy, almond, etc.).

To further promote healthy consumption at drink machines, be sure to make these items at a low cost compared to the non-healthy alternatives. Conveniently placing the products in a high-traffic area is a plus. 

Examples of Healthy Drinks


  • Regular bottled water- Any water brand, regardless of popularity, will sell in a drink machine


  • Coconut water- Adds vitamins and electrolytes to your water intake while also tasting better. 


  • Kombucha- Though it’s an acquired taste to many, kombucha has grown in popularity in recent years and is a must-have in drink machines. 


  • Vitamin water- Some vitamin waters have a lot of sugar, so make sure you’re reading the label before placing it in your drink machine. 


  • Iced tea- Unsweetened tea does the same as coconut water by adding electrolytes to the mix. Most popular tea brands have unsweetened or low-calorie flavors. 


  • Sparkling water- To give the satisfaction of drinking carbonation without the added sugars.
