Healthy Snacking at Monash
We’ve installed more than 100 vending machines across all Monash University campuses that provide healthy snack and drink options that are competitively priced.
Each snack is classified according to the traffic light system, with Green being the best choice, Amber an indication to choose carefully and Red reminding people to limit their consumption of these foods.
More than half of the vending machine snack options are categorised as green, ensuring that healthy snacks are always the easy option.
