OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/26/14 -- Health Canada
The Honorable Rona Ambrose, Minister of Health, and Terry Dean, Director of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, today jointly launched the Eat Well Recipe Contest. This 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.
-- Cooking with kids is a great way to connect and spend quality time together as a family. -- Encouraging healthy eating at a young age will help kids eat well later in life. -- A bonus of getting kids involved in cooking is that picky eaters are more likely to try food they help make.
"This contest provides an opportunity for families to come together in the kitchen to encourage healthy eating and share their recipes in a fun way with Canadians."
The Honourable Rona Ambrose
Minister of Health
"We're excited to support Health Canada on a contest that promotes healthy eating. Offering Canadians the opportunity to submit their favourite family recipes for a chance to win fantastic prizes is a positive way to encourage building food preparation skills."
Terry Dean, Director
Heart and Stroke Foundation
"I'm really curious to see what healthy recipes Canadian families submit. The best part will be cooking their winning recipe all together."
Canadian Chef and Eat Well Champion
"As the grand prize for this contest, I look forward to having a family join Chef Marjorie Maltais and myself in the kitchen to prepare their winning recipe. I invite everyone to participate in this contest!"
