At Georgetown's Sports at the Beach youth baseball complex, they're offering some healthy choices at the snack bar this year. Restaurant consulting company Highwater Management has added things like hummus and pita chips, a vegetable sampler, a fruit and walnut salad, and frozen grapes.
“We wanted to make a positive change in people’s lives,” Highwater spokesman Scott Kammerer said in a statement. “Originally everyone thought kids were only going to want hotdogs and cheeseburgers, but they overwhelmingly chose these new foods.”
“We didn’t think it would do well at all,” said Dan Wheeler, director of operation for Sports at the Beach. “But it really took off to become 20 percent of our sales.”
