Last week the kids and I had the opportunity to head to the Taste of Chicago. It’s an annual event filled with loads of fabulous food from top restaurants around the city and suburbs. Thankfully Humana was there with a list of Healthier Choices to make picking out healthier options a breeze.
When we arrived at the Taste of Chicago we visited the Humana booth right away as it was conveniently located right near the entrance we came in at. There we were given a list of the Healthier Choices options to carry with us to navigate our way through better selections of food at the Taste of Chicago. Then we went into the activity part of the Humana tent. There they had raffles, games and activities for the whole family to participate in.
With our food and drink tickets in hand the kids and I then made our way through the Taste of Chicago. If you’ve never been to the Taste before I have to tell you that trying to decide just what to get can be overwhelming with all of the options. The kids enjoyed being able to read the signs, decide what they wanted and go up and order on their own and then pay with the tickets. They loved that they were each able to get just the things that they wanted. Humana and the Taste of Chicago made it easy for all of us to know which booths provided Healthier Choices Options. The Humana H logo was by items on the menus that were on the Healthier Choices list.
What was our favorite Humana Healthier Choices food?
The day we went to the Taste of Chicago was ridiculously hot! The kids were sweaty and by the end very whiney about how hot they were. Luckily, near the end of our route around the Taste of Chicago we spotted the La Mexicana booth. There we each ordered either a strawberry or watermelon Paleta. (I grew up eating Paletas but if you’ve never had one it is a Latin American ice pop that is generally made with fresh fruit and they’re delicious.) Once they got their Paletas I took them over to one of the misting stations and between the Paletas and the cool misting water they were much happier within a few minutes.
