The five category focused events
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 milk with added protein and DHA?
Innovation in Action… Meet the Trailblazers
The three winners of FoodNavigator-USA’s annual trailblazers challenge present their kid-focused innovations to our expert panel for feedback on their products, branding, go-to-market strategies and business models.
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?
