What will our future fridge contain? Discover the future of food, what it means to us and how what we eat may change in the Future Food zone.

Pop over to get a taste of sustainability, pick up recipe cards and get some top tips for reducing the carbon footprint of your mealtimes. Check out our chocolate fountain, where you can learn about fluid dynamics while indulging in delicious chocolate treats.

Make sure to stop by Future Food Live where you'll witness the latest culinary creations and techniques, as top chefs whip up dishes that you can sample right there and then! Explore new flavours and ingredients and learn how to make meals for both a healthy body and a healthy planet.

But what happens when food goes wrong and gets infected with bugs? Why not find out by playing a game all about poo! Or challenge your friends to our competition to see who's the best at washing their hands.

Once you've taken this all in, then design your own healthy habit superhero to add to our festival collage. Your hero might focus on healthy foods, exercise ideas, ways to look after your body and mind, or even keeping the environment clean.
