Tell us your story:

In 2010, we established our Chef of the Day program. Basically, each family member has a day where they are the featured Chef. As the Chef, you plan a healthy meal, help shop for your ingredients, and then prepare everything with assistance as needed. Not only are our boys learning basic cooking skills, but they are discovering new foods at the store and learning how to prepare them. We never dreamed this small change would make such a healthy impact on our familys food perspective.
Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your family is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
