BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – No baseball game experience would be complete without classic ballpark snacks.

However, the food fans eat at the ballpark usually contains a lot of calories.

To lower the intake of calories, nutritionists recommend planning the food you want to eat ahead of time to control how much you eat.

Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the hot dogs and hamburgers packing the most calories.

Jumbo pretzels contain about 700 calories while an eight-ounce bag of peanuts runs about 840 calories.

But the mega snack to look out for are super nachos — with cheese they are about 1500 calories.
