Disney From A Kids Point of View: Food & Wine Festival

Katie's back as our guest blogger for another look at Disney from a Kids Point of View. Her take on the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival is not only great for kids, but also adults who are more picky eaters. Take it away Katie!

Most kids just like the same old pizza and chicken nuggets you can get at any restaurant but the one thing I think is all kids should have a wild side with food. My mom always let me have a wild side with food. I like to have my mom taste the food to see if I would like it or not first, and if she thinks I will, I try it. Most of the time I end up loving it. So all you adults out there reading my blog post, I think you should encourage your kids to try new food.

The EPCOT Food & Wine Festival is big fun for parents, but kids will find good things to eat as well. I went through the menus for all the booths that will be at the 2010 Festival and made a list of foods that adventurous kids might like! Most of the silly names of food are just things we we eat normally, like the Nürnberger Sausage in a Pretzel Roll, its just like a really big hot dog in a small bun. It might sound really weird but its super duper yummy! Here’s my kid approved list:

Argentina: Roasted Corn and Cheese Empanada
Australia: Lamington (sponge cake dipped in chocolate)
Belgium: Freshly Baked Waffles with Berry Compote and Whipped Cream
Canada: Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup, Nanaimo Bar
Charcuterie & Cheese: Cheese Fondue with Croutons and Roasted Potatoes (kids love to dip things)
China: Pork Pot Stickers, Xinjiang Barbecue Chicken Stick (might be a little spicy)
Desserts & Champagne: Strawberry Angel Verrine, Pear Streusel Pudding Cake, Dark Chocolate Sensation
Germany: Spätzle Gratin with Ham and Cheese, Nürnberger Sausage in a Pretzel Roll, Apfel Strudel featuring Werther's Original Karamell Sauce
Greece: Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki, Baklava
Ireland: Kerrygold® Cheese Selection, Warm Chocolate Lava Cake
Italy: Polpettine Toscane with a Rosemary Breadstick, Baked Cheese Ravioli w/ Creamy Bolognese Sauce, Cannolo Al Cioccolatol
Mexico: Tamal de Pollo, Churro
Morocco: Baklava
Poland: Kielbasa and Potato Pierogies with Caramelized Onions and Sour Cream (not all kids might like this but I think this dish really sounds good to me)
Spain: Almond Cake

The Disney Food Blog is a cool website where you can read about all sorts of things to eat at Disney. I get the food blog posts in my email through an RSS. From kid meals to ice cream and snacks there are pictures of yummy things to eat. You can read about all the different places and food. AJ, the maker of the Disney Food Blog is having a meet up during the first weekend of the Food & Wine Festival. My mom and I are going to go and meet all the other Disney foodies and have a fun time. Let us know if you’re going to be there too!
