It’s the time of year again that the Nestlé Healthy Active Kids program is giving primary schools across the country the chance to win a fully equipped mobile teaching kitchen, valued at $25,000 to help with nutrition and cooking education at school.
According to research, less than one in 10 children and adolescents are meeting the Australian Dietary Guidelines recommended serves for vegetables per day. One of the best ways to get children to eat vegetables and try new foods is through involving them in cooking.
Parents, teachers, family and friends can nominate a primary school to win The Kitchen Kart. Valued at $25,000, the fully-equipped, mobile teaching kitchen, will help teachers to deliver nutrition and cooking education in a hall, covered area, class, staff room – or even in the garden.
To enter, visit the Nestlé Healthy Active Kids website and answer the question:
In 50 words or less, tell us how your nominated school can encourage a healthier generation of kids?
You could win the Kitchen Kart for your nominated school as well as $1000 for your own family.
The competition is now open and runs until 11.59pm Friday 1 September 2017 AEST.
