Healthy Kids Contest Identifies Top Recipes

Tue, 26 Apr 2011 17:45:16 CDT

Healthy Kids Contest Identifies Top Recipes Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced the start of the judging period in First Lady Michelle Obama's Recipes for Healthy Kids competition. 15 teams of school nutrition professionals, chefs, students, and community members have developed the top creative, nutritious, and kid-approved recipes that schools can easily incorporate into National School Lunch Program menus. The recipes are from schools in 11 states.

Five entries were selected in each of three categories: whole grains, dark green and orange vegetables, and dry beans and peas. Recipes will be judged on student involvement, nutrition, creativity and originality, ease of use in schools, and recipe presentation. Schools that entered the top five recipes in each category will be visited onsite by a judging team of a USDA official, an American Culinary Federation chef, and a school nutrition professional to help determine the finalists from each category.

The top three will then participate in a national cook-off event this summer. Also, the recipes will be posted on the Recipes for Healthy Kids website for voting for the Popular Choice award, which will close May 15. To vote on your favorite recipe, visit the Recipes for Healthy Kids website.
