Katie is eleven years old and still lives at home with her family. Influenced by her Neurotic Disney Mom, she has grown up with the Disney brand being incorporating to many aspects of her life and shares her mom's passion for leading a Disney Driven Life. Katie looks forward to her annual vacations as a Disney Vacation Club Member, but in between trips you can expect to find her watching the Disney Channel and exploring all things in her own way.

Most kids just like the same old pizza and chicken nuggets you can get at any restaurant.  The one thing I think is that 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 first to see if I would like it or not, 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 eat normally, like the Nürnberger Sausage in a Pretzel Roll, it’s just a really big hot dog in a small bun. It might sound really weird, but it’s super duper yummy! Here’s my kid approved list:

Argentina: Roasted Corn and Cheese Empanada. (two thumbs up)
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 (two thumbs up), 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 (two thumbs up)
Morocco: Baklava
Poland: Kielbasa and Potato Pierogies with Caramelized Onions and Sour Cream (not all kids might like this but this dish really sounds good to me)
Spain: Almond Cake

I thought Food & Wine Festival 2010 was amazingly delicious, and it was fun to meet people. I had a great time at the Food & Wine Walkabout with Lou Mongello. We tasted lots of foods from around the world. If you’re a kid, don’t be afraid to try new and exciting foods at Disney!
