One of my daughter’s favorite events last year was the New York Kids Food Festival at Citi Pond at Bryant Park (see post). The Kids Food Festival has partnered with Cooking Light and the James Beard Foundation to help fight childhood obesity. The event engages children in fun activities such as a food plate scavenger hunt, cooking sessions, performances and a chance to get up close with some of your favorite characters in hopes to teach families and children how to make balanced choices with food. Build your own pizza or make spiced gluten-free waffle sticks in one of the cooking sessions. Tickets are required for each session. Free events will include a meet and greet with Brobee from Yo Gabba Gabba as well as performances from The Dirty Sock Funtime Band and Super Sprotz.
