Two Of Five Want Healthy Super Bowl Food

WASHINGTON, Jan. 29 (UPI) — The Super Bowl and food go hand in hand, but a U.S. survey says 2 out of 5 individuals who plan to watch the big game say healthful food items are a must.

The National Restaurant Association estimates 48 million Americans will order takeout or delivery food from a restaurant on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5. In addition, 12 million are expected to visit a restaurant or bar to watch the NFL championship game, the association said.

Hudson Riehle, senior vice president of the research and knowledge group for the association, said 69 percent of survey respondents said salsa, dips or spreads are must-haves for the Super Bowl.

Sixty-three percent said chicken wings are essential, 61 percent favor pizza, 50 percent favor desserts and 49 percent favor subs/sandwiches. In addition, 42 percent said healthful food items are a must on their game day table, the survey says.

The association’s research shows 31 percent of individuals who plan to watch the Super Bowl at their own home or someone else’s home expect to order restaurant takeout or delivery. Younger adults — ages 18-34 — and individuals with children are more likely to order restaurant food, at 52 percent and 40 percent, respectively.

The association surveyed 1,014 U.S. adults Jan. 19-22 about their dining plans for the Super Bowl Feb. 5. No further survey details were provided.

    Health nuts, if you plan to go to the Super Bowl, you can take your chances in getting healthy S B food. If you stay at home, you can blame yourself if you don’t get fed right. If you watch the game at a bar or a restaurant, you have only yourself to blame if you don’t get what you want.
    WHY is this a problem? UPI, once again you have stooped to assuming that something like this is a problem. Why can’t you grill Congress concerning how much money has changed hands so school kids have to eat slop in public schools? Roast food manufacturers, and demand to know why so much chemical crap is put into America’s food supply.
    Ask the FDA why they have no consistent standards in food quality or drugs. UPI, get a life. Get a different job, and let someone who’s interested in reporting REAL news do what you won’t, you overpaid, subjective con artists.
