Get the lowdown from Steve Taylor, PhD, co-founder and co-director at the Food Allergy Research & Resource Program, at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the latest speaker to join our line-up at the FoodNavigator-USA FOOD FOR KIDS summit in Chicago November 12-14.
In his presentation on November 13, Dr Taylor will explore:
- Why kids are allergic – the multiple factors that contribute to a growing problem
- Why avoidance diets don’t work – inhibiting life quality and prone to risk
- What peanuts teach us – clinical trials that prove oral tolerance can be acquired
- Daily dosing – how immunothereaputic treatments can achieve consistent desensitization
- Opportunities for innovation – creating food products that control allergies
At FOOD FOR KIDS – held in Chicago’s W Hotel - we will open with a lively parents’ panel exploring the day-to-day challenges around cooking and shopping for kids, and then take a deep dive into the market, the marketing, the branding, the nutrition science (what kids are actually eating, vs what they probably should be eating), and the infant microbiome.
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, clean label trends, and new direct-to-consumer distribution models.
Finally we'll explore what children are eating outside the home, whether we need a 'kids' menu' at restaurants, and how companies targeting schools and quick service restaurants are finding ways to develop healthier foods that meet tight budgets and evolving nutrition standards, but also appeal to kids.
