Take Me Out To The Ballgame . . . And Let Me Eat For Nine Innings

Batter Up

Baseball season is in full swing. If you’re going to be at a game – major league, minor league, or little league – it’s become almost a habit to chow down on the food being hawked by vendors or purchased from the food court.

Listed below are examples of some snacks and drinks common to baseball games.  You might be surprised at the calories in some of your favorites.

SocialDieter Tip:

To avoid the caloric onslaught you can:

  • Choose your food wisely
  • Avoid eating every inning
  • Bring some of your own snacks with you
  • Drink water or non-caloric drinks
  • Eat and/or drink “lite” versions (just be aware that some reduced or fat free foods have just as many calories as full fat varieties – fat has been replaced with sugars
