In PART II of FoodNavigator-USA’s Interactive Broadcast Series, starting today, Wednesday November 17 at 9am PT/12pm ET, we will take a closer look at children’s snacks: What are kids snacking on? and are parents happy with current options? What are they looking for when they buy snacks for their children (protein? low sugar? fruit/veggies? fiber? vitamins? probiotics?)
To set the stage for the discussion, Ali Webster, PhD, RD, and director of research and nutrition communications at the International Food Information Council will share the organization’s insights around kids' nutrition and eating habits, and what the most pressing challenges/pain points are for families when it comes to feeding their kids.
John Deaton, vice president of science & technology at Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes USA, will share the results from the company’s latest clinical trials, which uncovered multiple health benefits of its Bacillus subtilis DE111 probiotic ingredient for preschool-aged children.
Three moms will share their the ups and downs of factoring in snack time into their children’s daily diets and what type of options they would like to see more of from the industry from quick-nutrition and fresh options to a better assortment of allergen-free products.
