Trying to find healthy food at a state fair awash with deep-fried Oreos and foot-long corn dogs is no easy task.
At the Iowa State Fair, one of the rites of passage is trying food on a stick.

She has her work cut out for her.
There's an old fashioned hand-dipped ice cream stand and a cookie booth right across from her, so she's got some competition for her message of healthy eating.
