Parents are constantly looking for snacks that meet both the nutritional needs, and oftentimes, the picky palates of their child. Brands that can effectively meet both these fundamental demands are best positioned to win in the competitive landscape of children's snacks.

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.

Capping off the entire children’s snacks discussion we have a panel of industry players who will share how they’re approaching innovation in the kids snacking segment and what areas are primed for the most disruption and opportunity. Speakers include:

  • Jason Levine, chief marketing officer of Sabra
  • Denise Woodard, CEO and founder of Partake Foods
  • Jason Burke, CEO and founder of The New Primal
  • Ethan Holmes, CEO and founder of Holmes Made Foods
  • John Deaton, vice president of science & technology of Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes
  • Courtney LeDrew, senior marketing manager at Cargill

Register now​ for the event taking place on Wednesday, Nov. 17th​ at 11 a.m. CST​.  If you can’t make the live event, register anyway and you will receive a recording with the presentations and all the insights shared by parents and industry peers.
