Kids Healthy Eating Contest!!

HFA Strong Healthy Kids                        Show Us Your #HFAStrong Kids!

The holidays are upon us once again! Tis the season for recipe cards coming out of the cabinets, eating, regular trips to the grocery store, eating, healthy New Years resolutions and yes, eating!   Do you have a budding chef or nutrition expert in your home? Do they like to see themselves on camera?  Do you want to win a trip to sunny Las Vegas for Symposium in March?  Then this is your thing!
HFA would like to showcase what the youngest members of our community know about eating healthy and being physically active, in hopes of inspiring others to do the same!
Simply submit a video clip of your childchildren sharing what healthy eating and healthy choices means to them and your family will be entered to win our grand prize- a trip for the child and one accompanying adult to HFA’s Symposium! What’s more, your child/children could be featured or included in an HFA-produced video about children’s nutrition that will be shown online and at live events around the country.
Here are a few questions that your child/children can answer about nutrition in the video submission:

  • Why is it important to eat healthy foods?
  • What foods are important to eat?
  • How does eating healthy make you feel?
  • Where did you learn to eat healthy?
  • What is your favorite healthy food?
  • What is a healthy diet?
