Program

The Food for Kids Interactive Online Series 2020 consisted of five category focused events. Each interactive event included polling questions and live Q&A. Agenda details for each event can be found below:

The Consumer Panel

We set the stage for the conference by bringing together a panel of parents from across the country for a lively interactive video discussion exploring some pain points they experience when it comes to feeding their kids.

Which meals or day parts do parents find the most challenging when it comes to finding something that’s easy, affordable, healthy, AND appealing to feed to their kids? What do they look for – or avoid – on product labels? We’ll also look at how coronavirus and school closures changed cooking habits, food choices, and how and where they shop for food.

Kids and the Plant-Based Trend

Plant-based meat, dairy and egg products are gaining traction, from the next generation of burgers and nuggets to oat milk lattes.

But are these just for adults? Where is the opportunity in plant-based for kids, from a new generation of ‘hybrid’ products combining meat and plants, to new plant-based milks with added protein and DHA?

Beverage Trends

Kids are drinking less milk and juice as they get older, but what are they drinking instead, and is it good for them? How do parents evaluate what types of drinks are good for kids? What are parents looking for on food labels?

Meeting Children’s Nutritional Needs, from Foods to Supplements

What key nutrients do kids need from the first 1,000 days (conception to two years) to early childhood and the teen years, and what nutritional gaps should caretakers consider? What is the most effective way to meet children’s nutritional needs — is it through supplements, fortified food or threats that they can’t watch TV until they eat their broccoli? How do the diets of expecting and breastfeeding women impact their children, and what can they do to set kids up for a healthy future?
