Today marks the home opener for your 2009 Los Angeles Dodgers, and in the spirit of the whole Alice Waters/sustainable/eat-well movement currently sweeping the nation, the paper ran a big puff piece about Dodger Stadium's new health food movement. Because we've got to look out for those kids:
Sports stadiums around the country are, or have been, making similar moves, acknowledging that going to a game perhaps shouldn't be inextricably linked with a food binge ... "There's obviously this increasing problem of childhood obesity and lack of activity," said Yvonne Carrasco, the Dodgers' assistant public relations director. "We're a family venue, and this came out of a hope to get these kids more active and healthy."But you know what the article failed to mention? That there's another new dimension to the food offerings at Chavez Ravine this year: the price of the All-You-Can-Eat Pavilion will drop from $35 per game to $25 per game.
