Ready for some healthy competition? The deadline is March 22!

Shape Your Future and Tulsa Kids have partnered to host the Healthy Kids Cooking Contest. It is important that kids learn to choose healthy options at a young age to create positive habits for a lifetime. What better way than to create their own masterpiece filled with key healthy ingredients. Let the most delicious, nutritious recipe win.

Kids 14 and younger are encouraged to submit their own original recipes. Fruits, veggies, lean protein, whole grains, and low fat dairy are sure to make your dish outstanding. Recipes will be judged based on taste, creativity, originality and healthful ingredients. The winner will be announced in the Tulsa Kids May issue with a featured story and photo. Just be sure to submit your recipe before March 22nd.
