8th Children & Parents Day celebrating the Pineapple Fruit

Sponsored by Target

Event celebrated Florida’s 500th anniversary and National Nutrition Month

Local artists conducted activities



Boynton Beach, Florida - -- Sunday, March 3, 2013, the pineapple fruit had a starring role at the 8th Children & Parents Day. The family event was sponsored by Target stores and presented by the non-profit Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History.


Children & Parents Day celebrated the pineapple fruit for National Nutrition Month and the 500th anniversary of Florida entitled Viva Florida. Pineapple fruit farming had a major historic impact during the agricultural development of Palm Beach County and the State of Florida from 1860 to the 1930s. The Master of Ceremony was Virginia Sinicki, Morning Co-Host of the KVJ Show on Wild 95.5. Children & Parents Day was held at the historic Boynton Woman’s Club in
Boynton Beach, Florida.


Kingston & Associates sponsored a significant donation of their Sugar Pines MD2 Gold brand of pineapples. The farm-to-table lunch, smoothies, cooking demos and kids cooking classes infused the Kingston pineapples.


Personal appearances were by real farmers from the Florida Farm Bureau Federation and the Palm Beach County and Western Palm Beach County Farm Bureau. These agriculture bureaus participated in the event by hosting an information and farm-related activity station pertaining to farming in the State of Florida.


Children & Parents Day also featured pineapple fruit-infused cooking demos, Make-Me-A-Pineapple kids cooking classes, pineapple-themed arts and crafts stations with local artists, souvenir photos in the pineapple patch, a personal appearance by the Pineapple
Farmer Patty, entertainment, music and an all-you-can eat farm-to-table lunch.


Famed Chef Chrissy Benoit of The Little House restaurant of Boynton Beach conducted a cooking demo and kids cooking class highlighting the use of the fresh pineapple fruit. Chef Benoit demonstrated the Pineapple Salsa with tortilla chips and created a Pineapple Upside-Side Down Cake for the kids cooking class. The tortilla chips were sponsored by the Tortilleria Gallo de Oro of Lake Worth. Bonnie Brown of Bonnie’s Best Bests in Boynton Beach created Tropical Fruit Pineapple Cupcakes; and Chef Phillip Herman of the Secret Garden Café of Boynton Beach developed an amazing 5-course farm-to-table meal that incorporated the Sugar Pines Pineapples. Pineapple smoothies were created live at the event by The Juice Bar of Lake Worth. South Tech Culinary Academy students assisted the chefs with the kitchen management, demos and kids cooking classes.


A specially designed pineapple fruit-shaped cake made with Sugar Pines pineapples created by Pastry Chef Lara Fisher of Cakes by Lara of Lantana was unveiled at the Children
& Parents Day.


Other food ingredients and fresh produce were from the Boynton Urban Farm and Target grocery store.


Pineapple fruit cutting, tasting and planting demos was showcased by the Boynton Garden Club.


Pineapple-themed arts and crafts were the fun interactive experience for the children and their families. Local artists from Boynton Beach and Delray Beach hosted creativity stations that offered arts-making of pineapple masks, ceramic tile painting, art drawing and coloring. The artists included Rolando Chang Barrero of ActivistArtista, Barb Lentz of Art-Sea Living, Nadine Hamil of Artful Dreamers and Inge Behrens of CIB Art Gallery. The CIB Gallery hosted a 3-week display of the pineapple art work created by the kids at Children & Parents Day. Students from American Heritage School of Boca/Delray National Honor Science Society were the official student volunteers for the arts and craft stations. And, the welcome greeters were from the National Honor Society of Palm Beach Lakes High School of West Palm Beach, Florida.


The 8th annual Children & Parents Day is an official Community Event Partner for the 500th anniversary of the State of Florida, Viva Florida. Pineapple Farmer Patty made a personal appearance at the event and conducted storybook reading about the history of pineapple farming in Palm Beach County and a pineapple magic show. And, souvenir photos were hosted in the Pineapple Fruit Patch.
