If grabbing a quick Snickers or some Doritos is your lunch break guilty pleasure, it might get a little harder to do that if you’re in St. Petersburg. City officials want to swap junk food for healthier options in the machines in all city-owned facilities. The idea is that if you’re going to enjoy one of our beautiful city parks, you should also be able to enjoy a snack that is actually good for your body! Some things you will start to see are whole-grain crackers, seltzer water, and granola bars. I LOVE this idea think all vending machines should have healthy options. Nobody has the willpower to say no to the Reese’s cups staring at you when you’re starving and have no other options!!!! So what better way to avoid it then not having it there at all, right?!20161001_111314
