Just like with themselves, I'm sure many parents rationalize: they played so they can eat. Calories in, calories out right? Exercise justifies higher intake for many adults, and probably their kids too.

I don't think it's fair to say that youth sports contributes to the youth obesity problems in our country. The issue really is how we look at and treat food. Yes, most ball parks don't offer good food choices, but even when you are at a tournament for 8 hours on Saturday that doesn't mean you can't pack your own food for the day and stick with healthy, nutritious options. Fast food is convenient and cheap, but it doesn't have to be the only option.
