Tell us your story:

Our children love to look at recipe books and often ask to try new recipes that look good, so once a week our kids plan and prepare a simple family meal. A tradition begun at their request! It's kids' Head Chef night! We created a menu planning form to facilitate a healthy meal (see photo). The menu should contain protein, whl grain, dairy and fruit/veggie. Also on the form, the kids must identify the nutrit'l categories of foods in the recipe and list additions or healthy substit's if needed.
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!
