Food | Snacks | Concessions

Did you know there is NO soda or hot dogs at our event?! Each year we work with Monona Terrace to offer healthy food options from Concessions. Check out this year's menu options below! You can also bring your own snacks/lunch in and eat in our "picnic area."

Snacks & Extras

 

Baby & Toddler Needs

We know that going places with a baby or toddler requires special considerations!

Nursing Area

Breastfeeding welcome!

Breastfeeding is welcome anywhere at the Natural Family Expo.

In addition, we provide a quiet area for mothers to feed infants & toddlers - away from the distractions of the Expo hall floor.

Babywearing 

When they aren't busy with the Babywearing Fashion Show, folks from Babywearing International of Madison will be available to demo baby carriers and offer tips and tricks.

Changing Area

There are changing tables in both sets of bathrooms in the Expo Hall.  

Because we've found that's not quite enough changing tables for our attendees, we provide a separate changing area - where you'll find mats for changing and sanitizing spray to clean up afterward.
