This is part of a sponsored campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Transitions Optical. I was provided complimentary entrance to EPCOT to create my content. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival had a special culinary wine pairing and food demonstration with Food Network Star Chef Robert Irvine that was presented by Transitions Lenses. Through working with Transitions I have had the pleasure of meeting Robert Irvine twice. He is always an avid spokesperson for the brand and firmly believes that you must really see and taste your food carefully in order to enjoy it.

Our EPCOT Food & Wine experience was just that- quite an experience! Chef Irvine had us thinking about simple ingredients like using natural salt and pepper (yes, naturally grinding your pepper takes 30 seconds and makes a WORLD of difference) fresh herbs and minimally frozen ingredients or those packed with artificial preservatives and induced with added sugar. All of these simple changes can help your family’s health and well being so you can see and enjoy your food again. Part of why I enjoy working with the Transitions brand is its focus on messages of enjoying food with healthy sight and preventative care- which includes physical activity and eating a well balanced diet- to care for your eyes and overall health.

Transitions’ ongoing program ‘Dig into Cooking Tips, Tricks and Recipes with Robert Irvine’ showcases easy healthy food and how it benefits/supports your healthy vision. And Chef Robert has a particular focus on healthy eating for children where the importance is even greater to prevent major vision loss later in life. We sat down at EPCOT with Chef Irvine to specifically talk about how we can improve the foods our children eat but let them have fun at the same time- check it out:


Following my annual vision screening with my children earlier this year, we are all wearing stronger prescription lenses with Transitions. My children love them for school since their eyes are more protected during recess.

The new lenses are actually helping me indoors as they adjust to the computer screen brightness and help me reduce stress on my eyes throughout the day. Here’s your chance to order your Transitions TRIAL lenses.

The unique show runs through November 10th in Orlando. There are particular tickets you buy for the wine pairing and cooking demonstration events but you’re welcomed to visit the Festival Center for more details. All over EPCOT’s World Showcase there are more food pavilions from a whole new group of nations including Argentina, Puerto Rico and Scandinavia. The kiosks offer a special food and wine tasting menu that is divine!
