Take yourself out to the ball game this summer -- but go easy on the peanuts, Cracker Jack and other ballpark foods.

CNN's Elizabeth Cohen tallied up the calories of many popular stadium foods. Here's how they scored:

  • Average-sized hot dog: 150 calories
  • 8-ounce bag of peanuts: 840 calories
  • 8-ounce Cracker Jack bag: 420 calories
  • 2-ounce bag of cotton candy: 210 calories
  • 6-ounce beef hamburger with bun: 490 calories
  • One large slice of pizza without toppings: 400 calories
  • Super nachos with cheese: 1,500 calories
  • French fries with chili: 700 calories
  • Jumbo soft pretzel: 700 calories
  • Reglar ballpark soda: 140 calories
  • Draft beer: 240 calories

Many ballparks do provide less caloric foods, like salads, grilled chicken sandwiches, Italian ices and bottled waters.
