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!
