As moms, we are always working hard to feed our children healthy foods. My oldest comes home every day and pops a bag of Orville Redenbacher microwave popcorn. I don’t think that’s necessarily a good thing, but I’m letting her get away with it. Until now! This weekend in NYC, I’m hoping to go into the city to check out the Kids Food Festival at Bryant Park March 5th & 6th.
This year’s theme is sharing the vision to educate families on making balanced food choices. I can get with that. We all need to make better choices. (wipes sugar cookie crumbs off mouth).
The Kids Food Festival celebrates its sixth event at Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park, in collaboration with the James Beard Foundation and Upsilon Ventures. Kids Food Fest is the brainchild of Cricket Azima, founder of the Creative Kitchen.
Cricket enthusiastically explains, “The Kids Food Festival is a celebration to educate families about making balanced food choices to help create wholesome lifelong eating habits for both kids and parents. We offer a host of family-friendly activities including hands-on cooking, sampling, giveaways and entertainment—we actually have Snoopy from the Peanuts Movie coming this year!” What’s even more amazing is that this event is free to the public.
Since Crispy Green sponsored the Power Your Lunchbox program last summer, they have been seeking out additional opportunities to promote this powerful message and continue aligning their brand with other organizations that share similar core values and objectives. It only made sense to link up again with Produce for Kids to continue the momentum in influencing families to make healthier eating choices, by sharing space and activities at the upcoming Kids Food Fest!
