At the Marriott Chicago O' Hare, the standard junk-food-filled vending machine is getting an upgrade: the 470-room property has introduced a healthy food option in its lobby adjacent to the reception desk.

The idea was borne out of the brand's TravelBrilliantly contest which asked consumers for their help in shaping the future of travel.

The winner, Anjana Kallarackal, a 21-year-old from Atlanta, came up with the concept because she had so few healthy and quick dining choices during her stays at numerous hotels.

To help bring her vision to reality, Marriott partnered with the Chicago start-up Farmer's Fridge, which has created a machine filled with 15 to 25 nutritionally balanced options like a high-protein salad of organic spinach and quinoa, local corn and peas, chickpeas and figs in a lemon tahini dressing.

Nonsalad options include a Greek yogurt cup with berries and honey and sliced organic apples with almond butter.

The food will be delivered daily, and prices will be $3 to $12.

Katie Krum, the director of digital marketing for Marriott Hotels, said the plan is to test the kiosk for five months and to expand it to other locations if it's a success.
