Healthy Foods Compete With Hot Dogs And Peanuts At Today’s Ballparks

June 11, 2010: 09:49 AM EST
It’s no longer your granddad’s ballpark, especially when it comes to food sold at the concessions of the newly-built or renovated arenas. Stadiums all around the country have added not only more interesting and delicious fare to the standard menu of beer, peanuts and hot dogs, they’ve added more nutritious food as well. Health and medical journalist Mark Fuerst notes that the new Yankee Stadium sells fresh-made sushi and vegetarian Asian noodles, while Nationals Park’s (Washington, D.C.) "healthy plate" carts sell grilled vegetable and turkey wraps, hummus and vegetables. According to Fuerst, with the evolution of major league baseball into a big business, ballparks have modernized their menus to include fresh fruits, local produce, salads, and even vegan and vegetarian versions of burgers and hot dogs.
