Got kids who could learn better eating choices?
Head to the Kids Food Festival in Bryant Park, New York City on March 1st and 2nd, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Families will cook, dance, laugh, and taste their way to making balanced food choices. When kids are immersed in enjoyable activities, they absorb and retain information more effectively.
The Kids Food Festival embodies this philosophy of learning through fun with its weekend full of family-friendly events. Kids engage all five senses through hands-on, food-related activities. The magic of the festival is rooted in the fact that kids are having so much fun participating in flavorful activities, that they don’t even realize how much they are learning!
WHAT YOU’LL DO
Enthusiastic eaters and little epicures alike can attend hands-on cooking classes at the James Beard Foundation Future Foodies Pavilion, where renowned chefs pass on their recipes, skills and love for all things culinary to a new generation of learners.
The Balanced Plate Scavenger Hunt sends kids to exhibitors and activities to sample tasty, wholesome snacks while learning the importance of achieving balance in their food choices.

ABOUT KIDS FOOD FESTIVAL
We love the Kids Food Festival, now in its fourth season. It was developed by children’s author, teacher and food expert Cricket Azima, founder of The Creative Kitchen in New York City. She created it to combat the very serious issue of childhood obesity in a fun and effective way.
“We are able to promote and support companies that make healthful living delicious, and kids go home from the events excited about the new, better-for-you foods that they embraced,” Cricket explains. “Through the Festival, we get to reach thousands of families in one weekend, and that in itself is incredible.”
The Kids Food Festival supports the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
FREE GENERAL ADMISSION
General admission to the event is free, and includes activities and sampling. Tickets to the hands-on cooking classes in the James Beard Foundation Future Foodies Pavilion, $25, can be purchased online.
