THE FIVE CATEGORY FOCUSED EVENTS

October 21
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.

October 28
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?

Meeting Children’s Nutritional Needs, from Foods to Supplements

What key nutrients do kids need, when, from the first 1,000 days (conception to two years) to early childhood and the teen years? Should kids take supplements? If so, when, and what are the nutritional gaps parents should be thinking about? Are parents looking for dedicated products/brands marketed towards children, or are they giving their kids the same products and brands that they are consuming as adults? What formats and flavors work best for kids?
