Your kids have the opportunity to participate in a Kids Get Cooking Recipe Contest.

The Timmins-Misiway Healthy Kids Community Challenge is hosting the contest as part three of its Choose to Boost Veggies and Fruit theme. Project Manager Madison Mizzau says the goal of the contest is to get kids to consume more fruits and veggies in a fun way.

Mizzau says the winning three breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack recipes will be put into a cookbook for the community.

The recipes will be judged on originality, nutrition and taste. The contest is open for children in the Timmins area in grades one to eight.

The contest deadline is October 13th. Click here for more information.
