Does Yankee Stadium have Heart Healthy Foods?

I visited the “new” Yankee Stadium again this past week.  This was my 4th trip to the new stadium (Yankees beat the White Sox – Yeah!)

 I’m very happy to see the calories listed on all the food vendor signs and they even have a healthy fruit stand.

Being a nurse and a woman trying to control my weight I have to say I think this is a great and long overdue service.  The amount of calories listed in many of the foods was very surprising.  

 Being at a baseball game I wanted my traditional ballpark hot dog, and did select the smaller portion rather than the footlong which saved me some calories.  Of course a lite beer goes very well with the hot dog.

Then later I had some popcorn, and was surprised by the number of calories present in the “large” which was the smallest portion size available.

 Next day I spent a little extra time at the gym to burn off the extra calories I had enjoyed at the game.

 I started to wonder: Do most people really pay attention to this information? Do people make decisions based on the caloric intake?  I decided to try my first blog poll.

Please let me know your thoughts….
