Eat Well Recipe Contest aims to bring Canadian families together in the kitchen

By on March 3, 2014

The Eat Well, Recipe Contest promotes healthy eating and builds kids’ food preparation skills by encouraging families to plan, shop, and prepare healthier meals together. Canadians can submit a favourite family recipe for a chance to win great prizes, including the grand prize of a family cooking session with Chef Christine Cushing (in English) or Registered Dietitian Isabelle Huot (in French). The families can also submit a video or photo of them making the recipe for the chance to have it featured on the Healthy Canadians Pinterest page. 

The winning recipes, along with two-minute videos of the grand prize family cooking sessions, will also be featured on the social media channels and websites of Healthy Canadians, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and Christine Cushing and Isabelle Huot.

Recipes submitted should be lower in sugar, fat and salt, and will be judged by Chef Cushing and Dietitian Huot. Families with recipes to share have until midnight on March 8, 2014 to submit them online.
