On Sunday, we ventured over to Bryant Park for the 2013 Kids Food Festival. The idea behind the festival is to educate children on food to support a lifelong habit of eating well. There was plenty to do and see and tons of free delicious food for kids to sample.
They also had cooking demos (the above are my two making gluten free waffles) that were great fun. The kids got to mix, cut & enjoy their creations! Many of the brands that we know and love there there (Hey Lifeway & Honest Kids) and we discovered a few new things we loved like Kerrygold cheese and Creative Kitchen.
Creative Kitchen is such a genius idea! They organize kids cooking classes for birthday parties, playdates and preschools that teach children the value of delicious food through cooking. They set up a fun play space for kids to play with fake food and we noshed on some hot dogs and spaghetti ;)
Other notable discoveries: Today I Ate A Rainbow - a game for kids to encourage eating their fruits and veggies.
Looking forward to next year’s event!
