Uncle Ben’s Beginners Cooking Contest
Disclosure: this post is sponsored by Uncle Ben's and I was compensated for my time.
A sad fact today is that more and more kids are devouring sugary, high fat foods at home instead of cooking fresh, delicious meals. A lot of this stems from lack of nutritional education. My kids are now teenagers and I have one of them in college, so I am trying to involve them in cooking as much as I can so they can have the skills when they are out on their own. I am hoping by teaching them how to cook now that it will help keep them from eating out or grabbing too much junk food. Starting your kid's early is a great way to start. Even if it's just letting them help measure and pour. This is also a great time to talk to them about nutrition as well.
Uncle Ben’s believes it’s really important for parents to involve their kids in making and eating healthy meals at home. Uncle Ben’s is launching its fourth annual Ben’s Beginners™ Cooking Contest to promote cooking healthy meals at home. Parents, with children in grades K-8, submit a home video (three minutes or less!) of them preparing a rice-based dish with their child and discussing their experience cooking together. Five grand prize winners will win $15,000 cash, a hometown celebration and a $30,000 cafeteria makeover for their child’s school. The contest aims to have parents and kids cooking healthy together and having fun!
Not only is Uncle Ben's kicking off a brand new contest, but you can get started cooking with your kid's with this $1/4 Uncle Ben's Rice coupon. It get's even better. Uncle Ben's is going to giveaway a Ben's Beginners Prize Pack to one lucky CQ Fan which includes:
