We are excited to announce that our Kid Food Nation recipe competition is back!
The competition asks kids across the country to share original, healthy recipes that highlight their culture or their Canadian pride. The 2018 competition runs until April 1.
Last year, 4 of the 26 winners were Boys and Girls Club members. We are hoping kids at our Clubs and in the community will enter. With the help of their parent/guardian, kid chefs can submit their recipe at www.kidfoodnation.com (under “Contest”).
Winners and their families will attend a gala this fall at the Château Laurier in Ottawa, where they’ll rub shoulders with famous Canadians and have their recipes featured on the gala menu. Last year, Minister of Health Ginette Petitpas Taylor and Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam both attended the event, along with YTV hosts Carlos Bustamante and Mark “Suki” Suknanan.
The 2018 winners will also be published in our Kid Food Nation cookbook, which features professional photos of each winner, a quote about their recipe, and beautiful photos of their recipes!
