Nutritional Environment Measures Survey


The NEMS-Vending assessment tool assesses the availability of healthier food and beverage options in vending machines. On the NEMS-V website,, you’ll find a tutorial on how to use the tool, the healthy choices calculator and tips on how to take action to add some healthier options if needed.

Information on development of the tool can be found in the publication, “Nutrition Environment Measures Survey-Vending: Development, Dissemination, and Reliability”. Dr. Glanz and staff consulted on its development.
