Fresh Healthy Vending, the nation’s foremost healthy vending company salutes the YMCA for their upcoming event focused on kid’s health and well-being, ‘Active from Head to Toe’ will take place throughout the country on Saturday, April 27.
Standard vending machine fare can be hazardous to kid’s health, Fresh Healthy Vending can help to change that. Their machines offer healthy, all-natural, and organic snacks that are available at numerous locations, including hundreds of YMCAs throughout the country. Kids eating healthy with an active lifestyle are key to developing a solid future for this country.
Since summer is time away from school and a set agenda, activities that stimulate the mind and body may decrease as the school year ends. ‘Healthy Kids Day’ is the Y’s national initiative to get a jump on summer and help kids keep the spirit of being physically and intellectually active.
On April 27th, over 1,900 Ys across the country will provide free community events open to all kids and families. They are set up to encourage kids to get up, get out and grow. Filled with fun, active play and educational opportunities, this ‘Let’s Get a Jump on Summer’ day will help kids and families commit to playing and learning all year long.

David Anderson of the Red Wing, Minnesota YMCA offered, “As an organization that is promoting healthy living, we are very happy to have made the change to Fresh Healthy Vending. I feel it’s important for us to ‘Walk the Talk’ and now we are. Many of our parents have shared with us how much they like the choices and that they don’t have to say “no” to their kids when they want a snack after swimming, basketball or gymnastics.”
