It is common knowledge that in order to eat healthily, we need to consume a varied and balanced diet. Choosing what goes into that diet is tricky. Making sure we get the right amount of fruit and veg is trickier still. The World Health Organisation and the Department of Health recommend that we should eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables every day. These portions can come from fresh, canned and frozen fruit or vegetables. Whilst this is very possible at home, what about when we are on the go? A handful of companies are making consuming a portion when out and about easier by introducing healthy vending products which contain 1 of your fruit/veg potion. And bonus – they are delicious too!
✔️ They are packed with essential vitamins and minerals which are good for us.
✔️ Many of the nutrients found in fruit and veg act as powerful antioxidants, protecting the body.
✔️ Studies show that those who consume fruit and veg are at less risk of developing many diseases, such as obesity, heart disease and some cancers.
✔️They can help you maintain a healthy weight as they are also low in energy (calories).
✔️ They provide fibre which helps keep your digestive system healthy.
Although the benefits are well known, the majority of people in the UK are at least one portion of fruit and veg short a day. Only, 8% of teens and a third of adults actually meet the guidelines. We’re here to make this a little easier by providing some delicious healthy vending products which are also 1 of your 5 a day.

All ingredients are grown, which means they don’t use any preservatives or artificially manufactured ingredients. Along with all of our soft drinks, Juicy Fuel Cola is not affected by the sugar tax as it does not contain added sugar.
A favourite for young and old, we have three different Urban Fruit flavours; Pineapple, Strawberry and Mango. They are 100% natural, high in fibre and gluten-free.
