Food and activities? What better way to interact with Our kids than a nice day out of the house, away from work. Just a free mind ready to take in the experience. It will be nice to win, just because it will be the first time to attend something so nice like this. I'm sure it will be a great and fun day. & who knows mommy can learn a tip or two !

I would love to win because my son is a picky eater so I am constantly putting on the food network channel showing him how much fun food really is. Different ways of making and exploring options. I'm iron chef america, I'm chopped, I'm dinners drive ins and dives I'm every talented chef in one mommy from miami. All so he can explore food. Would love to win, and am sure we can learn a whole bunch! Keeping my fingers crossed

by Mruiz13 @ Feb. 9, 2014, 1:41 p.m.

I have never been to the food and wine festival after 13 years living in miami beach, but I would love to teach my 4 year old more healthy eating habits, we are also obsessed with andrew zimmern! In a good way! :-)

by nacostea @ Feb. 9, 2014, 6:36 p.m.

It would be awesome to experience this. We've been in Miami a decade and haven't gone yet!

Thanks :)

by msjackie72 @ Feb. 9, 2014, 6:57 p.m.

We'd like to win because my husband & I are fat but thankfully the kids aren't...yet.

by Msmonicam @ Feb. 9, 2014, 7:16 p.m.

We are interested in ways to make healthy food fun for kids

by GiselleD @ Feb. 9, 2014, 7:27 p.m.

My son is really getting into cooking with me, and what a fabulous way to make my foodie friends jealous!

by whitknee11 @ Feb. 9, 2014, 7:49 p.m.

I would LOVE to win because this preschool owner and more importantly, mama of two beautiful babes ages 2 and 7 - requires some much needed ME time ;).

by Skippingstonesmiami @ Feb. 9, 2014, 7:57 p.m.

Would love to win as we try and eat very healthily as a family and teach our children great habits - organic when possible, avoiding GMO's, etc. My son has celiac disease so being careful to avoid gluten means we are much more aware of what is really in our food. Also, I have been in Miami 14 years now and never made it to this wonderful event. So excited to hear if we win the tix!

by lucyviteri @ Feb. 9, 2014, 8:39 p.m.

We would like to go to this so that our family can enjoy a special event like this and the kids can be able to understand the meaning of a well balanced meal. I cook for my family daily and my kids have no idea what it takes to make a meal. To be able to see it up close by professionals would give it a whole new spin on it. Also, I would hope to learn tips and ideas to make new and healthy food that my kids would hopefully like.

by Showursmile @ Feb. 9, 2014, 8:42 p.m.

I would be absolutely thrilled to win free pass to attend this delightful family- friendly event. First off, I love watching cooking channels like check please! South Florida, Simply Ming, Chef John Besh's Family Table, Martha Bakes, Martha Stewart's Cooking School, Lidia's Kitchen, Pati's Mexican Table, Cook's Country From America's Test Kitchen and my all time favorite Baking With Julia. My family and I, enjoy eating all types of foods from different ethnic groups. My obsession with food is beyond unimaginable. I spend a sum amount money buying herbs and spices just to get that restaurant flavor taste.

Food allergies galore are a daily part of our family life. After having our allergic-set of twins, my hubby and I have since learned how to whip up meals using egg, gluten, dairy and chocolate substitutes. We are extremely grateful to the Food Network, which has provided countless of ideas for tasty recipes our kids can enjoy. The recipe-gathering and learning continues as the twins have recently hit their preschool years. Our house is a constant test kitchen and we would be extremely grateful for tickets that will improve our repertoire. Kudos to Munchkin Fun Miami for making these opportunities available, along with the countless of other useful information on a weekly basis for keeping our little ones entertained and active!

by Melissa1977 @ Feb. 10, 2014, 7:17 a.m.

I am always looking for fun things to do with my family. My husband works a lot so he doesn't get to spend a lot of time with the kids. He has Sunday's off so I this would be something great for us to do.

My 4yo thinks he's a master chef -- yesterday he "invented" PBJ & sliced strawberry sandwiches. I'd love to introduce him to even more culinary excitement!

I am a single person who adopted two children out of foster care. They are beautiful, smart children who are challenged and require an inordinate amount of attention. My life is full. There is never a dull moment. I appreciate all that others can do to make their lives enriched. Please consider your gift to us a true act of kindness toward the community-raising of these two children. Thank you.

by lucianamandal @ Feb. 17, 2014, 8:28 p.m.

I would like to win these tickets to take my daughter and nephew who never been to jungle island and love to watch the food channel. Please give 4 tickets to our family! We have never won anything from munchkin fun! Email:

by marije1096 @ Feb. 17, 2014, 8:54 p.m.

It has been a really difficult year for me and my 2 munchkins. We moved to N. Miami Beach from Sarasota to be with family after a divorce, an MS diagnosis, and my daughter's developmental issues overwhelmed our family. We are creating a new and better life here in South Florida, but a major challenge for us has been financial. There are so many things to explore and people to connect with, but we often can't afford to participate after gas, ticket prices, and parking fees. These tickets would afford myself and children a piece of social equity, something rarely appreciated by those who are so blessed to have it. I know my children would be positively inspired for the long run. Please consider our family... Thank you MunchkinFun!

by lthoma36 @ Feb. 17, 2014, 9:21 p.m.

I would like to win tickets!! It will be something different and fun we could do as a family!! Hope I win :)

by Pcrb @ Feb. 17, 2014, 9:43 p.m.

Great way to spend time together , taking in new healthy eating ways to cook and enjoying a visit to jungle island, that by the way we have not visited more often because of finances. Thank you.

by mercy @ Feb. 17, 2014, 10:52 p.m.

by nicole1215 @ Feb. 18, 2014, 7:23 a.m.

My kids are 3 and 4 and picky eaters. They enjoy helping me in the kitchen (even though they make more of a mess than help :)They will really enjoy anything related to cooking!!!

by lulacaldera @ Feb. 18, 2014, 8:31 a.m.

What better way to spend a day on the beach with family and some of the best names in the culinary world. I mean- tasting, cooking, trying, testing, learning- WE WOULD LOVE THIS. Plus my little man is an interesting eater so this would be a great way to learn more about enticing his eating habits with something eclectic & different. Thanks :)

by laleman0803 @ Feb. 18, 2014, 10:57 a.m.
