Welcome to Fit Pick™
Your Healthy Vending Solution!
If you’re looking for an easy but effective healthy vending program you’ve come to the right place! The National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) created the program to help schools and workplaces implement a program that identifies products that meet specific nutrition guidelines.
NAMAís Fit Pick program includes stickers that are placed in front of qualifying products, thin clings that explain the nutrition standard, coin slot stickers and round stickers to help educate consumers as well, and is part of the organizationís Balanced for Life program which is designed to educate consumers about the elements of a balanced diet and the importance of physical activity.
The Fit Pick program is flexible and can help in a variety of settings, and includes two different nutrition standards that can be implemented depending on your needs.
- Fit Pick Standard 35-10-35: Identifies products with not more than 35% of their calories from fat, not more than 10% from saturated fat, and not more than 35% of the total weight from sugar (nuts and seeds excluded).
- Alliance for a Healthier Generation Standard: Popular with schools, their standard begins with the 35-10-35 guidelines and then adds caps on sodium and calories. This standard meets California guidelines for schools.
According to 2010 figures compiled by NAMA, 1,215 organizations registered for the Fit Pick healthy vending program including 162 government agencies, 99 schools and school systems, 247 worksites and 573 vending companies.
