Children, with the help of their parents, can submit recipes through Jan. 22.

For a recipe to be considered, it must be:

• An original recipe for a hot or cold side dish

• Include at least one fruit and/or vegetable

• Able to be cooked within 20 minutes (not including prep time)

Five kids will be chosen as finalists and invited to present their recipes to a panel of judges at a public event on Feb. 1. Following the event, the recipes will be posted online at for a public vote.

All finalists will receive fun prizes, and the grand prize winner will receive a bike.
