Healthier Foods at the Push of a Button

Sheehan Brothers understands the challenge of eating healthy in today’s fast-paced work environment. So, to help our customers make healthier choices—in a hurry—we clearly label “Good Choice” fresh foods, snacks, and beverages in our vending machines with green “check mark” labels. By blending convenience, value, and a variety of healthful selections, we’re making it easier than ever before to improve personal health and wellness on the go.

Good Choices Made Easy

To help consumers make healthier decisions in the break room or cafeteria, we’ve developed a labeling system for our products that allows them to quickly and easily identify items that support healthy lifestyles.

Our “Good Choice” labels identify healthful fresh foods made in our commissary and the name-brand snacks and beverages that accompany them in our machines. Selections with green “check mark” labels meet the “35-10-35” criteria set by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. This means that these foods and beverages don’t get more than 35% of their total calories from fat, no more than 10% of their calories from saturated fat, and that no more than 35% of their total weight comes from sugar. And because we want to empower our customers to make informed choices, we also place yellow “Common Sense Choice” labels on items that don’t meet the 35-10-35 standard, but are still healthier than other available alternatives.
