November 19, 2013 – Do you have a healthy recipe that’s a hit with your students? Consider entering it in the Kids LiveWell Recipe Challenge, created by the National Restaurant Association & McCormick for Chefs!
The Kids LiveWell Recipe Challenge is a fun and creative way to showcase healthy menu options for kids and build on the spirit of innovation and creativity. Who knows more about creating healthy, kid-friendly meals than school nutrition professionals? SNA encourages all members involved in a foodservice operation to enter the challenge.
Restaurant and foodservice operators can submit one or more recipes from their children’s menus that meet the nutrition criteria from Kids LiveWell, which are based on the USDA dietary guidelines.
Any restaurant or foodservice company is eligible to enter.
To learn more, check out the nutrition requirements and enter the contest, visit www.restaurant.org/recipe. The deadline to submit recipes is December 15, 2013.
The winners receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Chicago, Ill., where they will be honored at the 2014 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show (NRA Show).
