I don't know if this public health education method is doing any good, but I did manage to snag a calorie button at a recent baseball game.

I went to a Mets vs. Cubs game at Citifield Sunday night (Cubs 10, Mets 6, 11 innings). While everyone else was engrossed in the game, I was distracted by the vendors.

They wore calorie label buttons!

I managed to get one.

Is anyone evaluating this public health education method?

Whether it does any good or not, I wish I could have gotten the button for peanuts: 960 calories!
