In an effort to practice what we preach on the No Sweat York blog, the York Newspaper Co. has installed new vending machines in its break room, offering healthier choices for those late-afternoon munchies.

Aaron Kikola of B More Healthy Vending said the machines will feature more whole grain snacks such as granola bars.

Here are excerpts from an email Publisher Sara Glines recently sent to staffers:

Happy 2015 everyone!
If your new year resolution is to eat healthy, we’re here to help. Our Healthy Vending machines will be installed on Thursday! No more Mountain Dew, No more Snickers bars. But there will be plenty of tasty treats.
And an added bonus, the new machines will accept credit cards, so you can snack without borrowing cash from your colleagues.
Have a happy and healthy new year!
