After a successful run in 2012 (even with being held on a snowy weekend!), the Kids Food Festival is coming back to Bryant Park on March 2 and 3. During this two-day celebration of healthy eating, families can mingle with chefs and culinary icons, plus check out demos, classes for kids, samples, live entertainment and the Balanced Plate Scavenger Hunt. Chef (and co-founder of the festival) Cricket Azima will teach kids how to make tasty, nutritious and pretty-looking fruit and yogurt treats, while Veggiecation will school tots in the artful process of creating a cucumber salad. On Saturday, tykes can catch performances by Songs for Seeds, Yumiloo & The Rainbow Machine and Super Sprowtz, and meet the characters from Super Why. Sunday's lineup includes a performance by Karma Kids Yoga, Baby Loves Disco, and The Dirty Sock Funtime Band. Plus, Time Out Kids will be hosting a photo booth session during the Yo Gabba Gabba meet and greet on Sunday (10:30am)—make sure to stop by, say hi and get your child's picture taken! General admission to the event is free; event ticket prices vary. For tickets and a full list of events, visit kidsfoodfestival.com.
