Walking Off the Munchies

Almost every South Carolina town or community has an annual fair, festival or carnival. These events feature many high-calorie treats like funnel cakes, cotton candy, caramel apples and corn dogs. Since you do a lot of walking at these events, you may think you can burn off those extra food calories. You can, if you walk up to a mile and a half for a bag of cotton candy or three miles for a funnel cake!

To find out how much exercise it takes to walk off your favorite fair munchies, and how with a little planning, you can fit your favorite fair foods into your diet, refer to: HGIC 4033, Walking Off the Munchies.
