Go ahead kids, Try It!!


How many of us weren’t adventurous when it came to trying new foods when we were kids? I know I wasn’t. To this day I refuse to eat fish, it’s a phobia I think! Well, Disney is doing a campaign for the International Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot this year, and it could get your kids to broaden their horizons on what they will eat.

The campaign is called Tryit. TRYit is part of Disney’s Magic of Healthy Living initiative, partnering with parents to inspire kids to try new foods and new activities. You’ll see TRYit dishes all throughout the World Showcase Promenade. The festival is a fun way to try small samples of something new. If you can give your kids an extra nudge, and remind them that everything is better at Disney, maybe they’ll give it a go!

Look for the TRYit logo on these unique and fun dishes in the Garden Marketplaces and Festival Center. The festival runs from March 6 – May 19, so there’s lots of time to try them all:

Beet Lollipop (Intermissions Café in the Festival Center)
Wild Berry Slush (Fruits by the Glass)
Baked Goat’s Brie with Kumquat Chutney (The Cottage, UK)
Frushi (Fruit Sushi) (Hanami, Japan)
Lasagna Primavera (Primavera Kitchen, Italy)
Potato Pancakes with Apple Sauce (Bauernmarkt, Germany)
Spring Pancake with Grilled Chicken & Green Apple (China)
Watermelon Salad with pickled Red Onions, Baby Arugula, Feta
Angel Food Cake with macerated Florida Berries (Florida Fresh)
Ratatouille Tarte with Goat Cheese (L’Orangerie, France)
Moroccan Sweet Pancake (Taste of Marrakesh, Morocco)
Waterkist Farms Heirloom Tomatoes with house-made Mozzarella,
Vinegar & Basil (The Cottage, United Kingdom).

If you get the opportunity to try any of these new items, be sure to report back and let us know how it was!

    I went to the festival today. I tried the Frushi, Ratatoille Tart with Goat Cheese, the Watermelon Salad, Potato pancake with homemade applesauce and the Baked Goat’s Brie with Kumquat Chutney. I actually liked them all, however the baked brie was my favorite. It was in a turnover form and the chutney was wonderful. My second favorite was the Frushi with the Watermelon salad following close behind at third. I didn’t dislike the potato pancake. It sits at fourth place. The ratatouille was an interesting experience. It had a filo dough base which had no flavor. If I were going to get any of these again, I would definitely go for the baked brie. I didn’t get to the Fruit by the glass kiosk and I’d like to try the lasagna and the other pancakes when I go back in April.
