It really isn't your place to comment about other parents' decisions.  It just isn't.

They really shouldn't have kids meals come with sodas.   This is a state run facility they should have healthy options for both kids and adults.  That would include Milk and water as the main options for beverages.   Things like carrots and apple slices as snacks to go with a meal.  The American Heart Association and American Pediatric Association both recommend not giving your children sugary drinks.

No one is debating with you the merits or hazards of eating hot dogs or drinking soda.  We are simply advising you that it is wholly inappropriate for you to lecture others regarding their children.  You seem to be missing some social cues here.  This really isn't something you should continue to belabor.  Please take the hint.

I am not offended.    But I think atomic is in a distinct minority if he never let his kids drink a soda, or If he thinks that other parents would be aghast to learn that I let a soda pass through my kids’ lips.      At home, our kids mostly drank milk.    But on special occasions when we were out somewhere, yes they had soda sometimes.    They are all now productive members of society and none are habitual soda drinkers.   To the extent they had cavities (and yes they all had some), I very much doubt that an occasional soda was the cause.   

Apparently other parents must do the same, since I’ve seen plenty of soda stands at the stadium and none selling milk.    

As an aside, does anyone remember when Todd Marinovich was a phenom college QB, and there were tons of articles about how he’d never had a soda in his life?   And then he had a major drug problem later, if I recall correctly.    It’s not always good to be overly strict with your kid about their diet.    Within reason.

There are a few healthy options available.    My wife’s a vegetarian and they have a few items there, though you have to roam the stadium to find them.     
 

To steer away from the uncivility, and because I'm genuinely curious, do you or any others here know what vegetarian options there are on offer, aside from the obvious ones like nachos, fries, etc.? I usually bring my own food, or wind up with the pizza (which is, without fail, consistently unimpressive). But there have been times when I would have loved to have a veggie burger or veggie dog option. Sometimes I can't bring my own food and just don't feel like spending two innings walking the stadium to try and scout for one.

I think it is a generational thing.  I don't think giving kids soda is the norm now.  I don't think not giving your child a soda turns them into a drug addict.  That is a big stretch.  You have no idea what happened during Marinovich's life or what he is pre-disposed to. He also was probably hit in the head many times during his career. I mean would you say not giving kids beer when they are growing up turns them into alcoholics?  

I am not overly strict with my child's diet.  I just see the point in giving them pancake syrup water is anyway healthy. I am in my mid 50's and have never had a cavity.   I think soda definitely leads to cavities and other issues.  I have traveled extensively and the countries where the food seems the healthiest seems to have the longest lifespans.  

 

It is a shame they don't have milk at every stand at the stadium.  Or that the food is all so unhealthy.  And I say that for myself.  I don't eat fried food or hot dogs or hamburgers.  I get Turkey Boogs Barbecue with cole slaw.  Used to get the Korean Tacos but those are gone.  Nice to know they have vegi-burger options.  I might give them a try.  LIke vegi-burgers as long as they aren't the newer kind that taste like beef.  

And I wouldn't make such a big deal about the unhealthy options if they were healthy options throughout the stadium.

You can feed your kids healthy food and they can eat hot dogs, which are unhealthy. Soda isn’t healthy and it’s not good for your teeth. You’re not touching on anything groundbreaking here. 

Kids can brush their teeth and avoid cavities. They can exercise and avoid health issues caused by fatty or sugary foods. Going to the ball park is a treat, and therefore the food is generally a treat as well. It’s a time to kick back and enjoy life, and for many that includes not eating healthy. Eating or drinking unhealthy food in moderation is not bad for you. 

I agree that it would be amazing if there were more healthy options at the stadium. I don’t disagree with that point at all.

To act like you don’t understand why would give soda or hot dogs to children is being obtuse for the sake of moral superiority. Soda tastes good

Yeah that is the main issue. If you drink soda you are going to think sweet food tastes good and you will gravitate towards it.  I don't find soda tastes good at all. If you focus on sweet foods by the time you get to my age you won't even be able to even run a mile and will start having health issues.  

Really have worked in health care field most of my life and I can tell you diabetes is a terrible disease.  Heart disease, kidney failure, loss of limbs.  And it is affecting more and more people. 25 percent of Marylander's who are 65 have diabetes.  14 percent in the 45 to 65 age group. 

I am not trying to change peoples eating habits but the parents I am around prefer healthy beverages and snacks.  It would be nice if we had as many healthy options as unhealthy options.

Did they stop selling water at Camden Yards?  Because, from what I’ve read on here, there are no healthy alternatives to soda.  And is it also true that people are required to buy food at the stadium?

I haven't criticized anyone.  I just thought people didn't feed their kids hot dogs and coke anymore.  Just like most people don't smoke anymore. I am around a ton of kids functions: birthday parties, school events, sports etc.  I never see anyone give their kids anything other than milk, water or juice to drink.

Most people don't smoke anymore? Come to Portland, Oregon and leave your little cocoon.

Personally,  I wish fewer people smoked, but that's neither here nor there.

    • I not sure that I disagree! But, in a 0 tolerance situation might be a big win. Under that scenario if Antonio agrees, the risk is very small.
    • I just finished Erik Larson’s latest book, The Splendid and the Vile.     It covers the first year of Churchill’s time as Prime Minister in WWII, during which the British pulled off a miraculous escape from Dunkirk, Britain endured 8 months of near-nightly bombing raids, and the US passed the Lend-Lease Act as FDR’s response to Churchill’s pleas for weapons and munitions.    The book is centered around Churchill but also has detailed accounts of others in his family, various key advisors, and various figures in the US and Germany.    As usual, it’s a stellar narrative by Larson that reads like a serial action story.     It’s a really good time to read a book like this, remembering the past sacrifices people made and hardships entire countries have had to endure, and yet emerged from.    I’m starting a new book, Last Hope Island, that focuses on the contributions made by some of the smaller European nations during WWII, including a number of government leaders who had taken refuge in London while still resisting the Germans after their countries were overrun (hence, the title of the book).  
    • He'd been battling kidney disease for quite a while. https://syndication.bleacherreport.com/amp/2884681-white-sox-broadcaster-ex-mlb-player-ed-farmer-dies-at-age-70.amp.html
    • Definitely more then the flu. The damage to the lungs is alarming. Seems to act  like more then just a virus in the 5% who get it real bad.  https://www.npr.org/2020/04/01/825499422/ventilators-can-save-lives-of-some-covid-19-patients-but-theyre-no-panacea   From my friend in his 50's. He is not even in the hospital but at home.  Im willing to look into sharing my immunity (once I survive). I im 9 days into exposure. Thank god lungs are clear. Breathing is strong. Dealing with 20% normal energy. No appetite. Lost 9 pounds so far.  Fever ranging from 101 - 103. Chills. Diarrhea.  Fun. Fun. Fun.  
    • Thanks.    These are fun observations to have at a time when there are no current games to evaluate.    
    • Not sure what schools have to do with baseball.  Schools have closed because it is hard to get the schoolyear finished before the start of the next one.  Also that is public, not privately owned like MLB.  I think baseball could do July or earlier if necessary.  Seems MLB doesn't want to start unless fans can attend.  NBA and NHL, I think were looking at the CBA(Chinese basketball league) for starting up.  Sending players to neutral sites, keeping players and coaches under quarantine, and playing in empty stadiums.  I think baseball could do that in Arizona or Florida or both.  I kind of agree with Mark Cuban that games would help people in the crisis, but would need to be done safely.  WWE seems to be handling it well so far.  UFC is also going to try with 249 and their last Fight Night in Brazil. 
    • 50-80% is quite a wide array statistically which means its still not clear.  if its closer to 80% you are more correct, if its 50%, we are choosing to kill people being short because 1/2 people on ventilators survive.
