FoodNavigator-USA Summit: Food for Kids

November 12-14, 2018
W Chicago City Center, USA

Join us for the inaugural FoodNavigator-USA Summit: Food for Kids. Organized by the publishers of FoodNavigator-USA, the number one daily news service for the food and beverage industry. The FoodNavigator-USA Summit: Food for Kids focuses on food and nutrition for expectant moms, babies, toddlers, kids and teens.

Almost one in three American children is overweight or obese, and according to FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education​​), one in every 13 has a food allergy, and prevalence appears to be rising.  Many kids also lack access to fresh, nutritious food, and are short of essential nutrients from potassium, dietary fiber and calcium, to vitamin D. Still more go to school without a decent breakfast, while many teens increasingly snack on junk food, throughout the day.

So how can retailers, packaged food brands and the food service industry respond to these concerns and work with other stakeholders to develop and market nutritious, allergy-friendly meals, snacks, and beverages that parents want to buy and children actually want to eat?

At FoodNavigator-USA’s new summit we will explore the market, the nutrition science, and the politics swirling around what we are feeding our kids, inside and outside the home. We’ll also delve into the latest brand innovations targeting every life stage, from the new wave of HPP baby food brands to Paleo meat snacks for tweens, healthy lunchbox snack trends, low-and zero sugar beverages and new direct to consumer distribution models.
