The deadline for kids cookery competition Young Cooks has been brought forward one day to Wednesday, November 6.
Young people aged six to 19 across the south-east still have a month in which to submit recipes for the contest, and one of the judging organisations has highlighted the role Young Cooks can play in teaching them about healthy eating.
Jono Erodotou of first-aid training provider SE Medical said: “We are supporting Young Cooks for 2019 because we feel it’s vital that young people are encouraged and know how to prepare healthy, nutritious meals.
“We hope the competition succeeds in getting children cooking at home, working together with their families.”
The competition is organised by Inspire Schools.
Entrants are invited to submit recipes that are healthy and delicious, with shortlisted finalists being invited to recreate them for a team of judges at a Masterchef-style event in November.
The winners will share £500 in prize money, and there will be separate primary-school, family, secondary-school and overall winners announced.
Apart from SE Medical, Young Cooks is supported by the Dog at Wingham, the Southern Co-op, Broadstairs College, Macknade Fine Foods, Principals by CH & Co Group, Chequers Kitchen, Brakes, Golding Homes, Three R’s Teacher Recruitment, Kent Catering Services, Whole School Meals and Taylor Meats.
