State Fair Offers Healthy Food Options and Education Amid Deep Fried Decadence

Local News

While the New York State Fair is well known for its gut-busting less than healthy food options the state is offering educational outreach to help teach fairgoers how to eat healthily.

On top of the deep fried candy bars wrapped in bacon, hot dogs served in donuts and an artery clogging sandwich called the defibrillator, the fair features healthy eating options and live demonstrations with nutrition experts.

This year at the fair you will find Buffalo Wings made with tofu and there are other vegan and vegetarian options as well.

There are displays showing attendees how to eat healthy on a budget.

Nutrition educators from Cornell Cooperative Extension Offices are leading interactive demonstrations with the themes: “Eating Healthy on a Budget – Choose Healthy Snacks!” and “Re-Think Your Drink!” which shows the amount of sugar in soda and other popular drinks.

The display features video games focused on making good food choices.
