Boise and Meridian Schools to Install YoNaturals Healthy Vending Machines. YoNaturals continues to facilitate Schools Nationwide with its Healthy Vending solution.
Boise,,May 5, 2008 – YoNaturals Inc. the market leader in healthy vending in the U.S. today announced the installation of its YoNaturals healthy vending machines in the Boise, Idaho area. Schools that are included are Capital High School, Centennial High School, Meridian High School, Meridian Middle School and Eagle Middle School.
“We’re excited that Boise area schools are now part of our nationwide network that is growing weekly” says Mark Trotter, CEO of YoNaturals Inc. We’ve also recently added New York Times best selling author Dr. Roy Vartabedian author of Nutripoints to help us on our product selection “Dr. Roy has been invaluable in helping us select the products that have scored the highest NutriPoints on his new NutriHeros and NutriGrades colorful nutritional charts designed especially for children.” said Mark Trotter, CEO of YoNaturals. The NutriGrade is a letter grade--like a grade for a test or a class--for each food, so most of the foods on the NutriHeroes side receive an A or A+, while those on the back NutriZeroes side receive a C, D, or F. It’s a great way to educate and motivate kids to see the relative nutritional value of foods and make better choices for their diet.
While dedicated to improving the snacking habits of all people, the direction of YoNaturals most recent campaign was stirred by the fact that today’s youth are, overall, the unhealthiest in U.S. history. More than 12.5 million children are currently overweight, and nearly 13 million more are at high risk of becoming overweight. It is obvious that a healthy vending program geared toward children is a step in the right direction. Mark Trotter, CEO of YoNaturals, adds that, “This nationwide epidemic of childhood obesity and early-onset-diabetes has attracted attention from parents, lawmakers, and school officials who have become increasingly concerned about the diet of America’s school children.”
“We have been committed, from the start, to providing locations with alternatives to the ‘junk food’ that is typically found in today’s school vending machines. Mark Trotter, CEO of YoNaturals, explains that, “Our machines are stocked with great-tasting all natural and organic snacks and beverages such as Stacy’s Pita Chips, Clif Bars, Pirate’s Booty, Fiji water, Horizon organic milk and a selection of over 200 other products which have been specially selected to be nutritious but most importantly taste god.” “For once, vending machines can be associated with a leading movement in consumer health and wellness”, he adds.
It is the hope of YoNaturals that other schools throughout the state of Idaho begin taking notice of the actions of their peers, and start making positive changes for their students.
