Nutritional Environment Measures Survey


The NEMS-Vending assessment tool assesses the availability of healthier food and beverage options in vending machines.

On January 26, 2012, Carol Voss of the Iowa Department of Public Health and Susan Klein of Iowans Fit for Life presented on Iowa’s experiences in using the NEMS vending machine assessment tool and its website development and how their project was leading to policy and environmental change in Iowa.

*As of February 2020, the NEMS-V website is down. We have added the resources and tools to, courtesy of the Iowa Department of Public Health.
