Coconut water is now available to fitness conscious teen-agers at Chippewa Falls High School in rural northwest Wisconsin. One Coconut Water brand is stocked in the school’s vending machines, thanks to Principal Becki Davis who accepted an offer from Fresh Healthy Vending to place machines in her school.
Protein shakes and other healthy snack and beverages are also stocked in the machines.
There are no health food stores in the small town of Chippewa. Davis said the students were excited to have healthy snacks and beverages available.
Wade Bergner, a local triathlete made it his mission to supply healthful snacks to Wisconsin school students via the vending machines.
When Fresh Healthy Vending contacted Davis, she said she thought to herself ‘there’s no good reasons NOT to try this’. She found that many of her students were already familiar with the health benefits of coconut water.
