Healthy Kids Competition Deadline Near

Healthy Kids Competition Deadline Near
Recipes are due in by this Thursday.

Teams across the country are working to improve school meals and the health of children across the nation by creating exciting new recipes for inclusion on school lunch menus. These teams must submit their recipes for the Healthy Kids Competition by Thursday at 5:00 p.m. The competition draws on the talents of chefs, students, school nutrition professionals, and parents or other community members working together to develop tasty, nutritious, kid-approved foods. 

The original recipes must meet nutritional requirements in three categories: whole grain foods, dark green and/or orange vegetables, and dry beans and peas. Submissions must be taste tested by at least 30 students who participate in the National School Lunch Program.

There will be a grand prize chosen by the judging panel as well as a Popular Choice winner based on public voting. The judges will choose award winners for the top two recipes in each category. To recognize and share the culinary creativity nationwide the top ten recipes in each category will be published in a Recipes for Healthy Kids Cookbook to share with students and families.
