TOPS Tells How to Fare Well at Summer Fairs

Published: Monday, July 15, 2013 at 17:13 PM.

Plan Ahead

Many larger fairs, festivals, and theme parks list vendors with healthier menus right on their websites, so you can check out your options before you go. Look for grilled meats and try substituting fresh or grilled vegetables for french fries. You’ll cut the calories and benefit from more fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

Skip Sauces

Limit high-calorie condiments like mayonnaise and dipping sauces – or skip them altogether. If you can’t live without sauces, dressings, or mayo, ask vendors to serve them on the side, so you have more control over how much you eat.

Share

Try sharing a favorite treat with a friend or family member to reduce calories, fat, and sodium intake and to keep portion sizes in check. An added benefit:  you’ll save yourself a few dollars.
