Kids Cooking Challenge:
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona is looking for great-tasting, kid-inspired side dish recipes for the ninth annual "Walk On!" challenge."
Arizona children ages 9 to 12 who have a healthy side dish recipe are invited to enter the contest.
The top five recipes will be selected based on nutrition, taste and originality.
For a recipe to be considered, it must:
-Be an original recipe for a hot or cold side dish
-Include at least one fruit or vegetable
-Be able to be cooked within 20 minutes (not including prep time)
The five finalists will be invited to present their recipes to a panel of judges at a public event Feb. 1.
Following the event, the recipes will be posted online at www.walkonaz.com for a public vote.
All finalists will receive fun prizes, and the grand prize winner will receive a bike.
Visit www.walkonaz.com for contest details and to submit a recipe. All entries must be submitted no later than Wednesday, Jan. 22.
