Take me out to the ballgame

Summer is a great time for a family outing to the ballpark. Tailgating and time spent at the game doesn’t mean you have to indulge in unhealthy treats. Skip the traditional hot dogs, peanuts, buttery popcorn and nachos, and go for some healthier options.

Try these choices at your next tailgate:

  • Hummus with carrots, celery or whole-grain, baked pita chips
  • Vegetables with a yogurt veggie dip
  • Whole-grain tortilla roll-ups with low-fat cheese, salsa, avocado and black beans
  • Pasta salad made with whole-grain pasta, low-fat dressing, cucumbers, olives and low-fat cheese
  • Lean meat sandwiches on whole-grain bread with spinach, tomato, onion and low-fat dressing

While at the ballpark, scope out all your options instead of grabbing the nearest food you see. Some low-fat options include pretzels with mustard, Italian ice or low-fat frozen yogurt.

Also keep in mind food safety comes first. Keep cold food cold and hot food hot.
