Could your kid be the 2018 Power Chef?

PowerUp is inviting kids to have fun with fruits and adventures with veggies. Children across Minnesota and Wisconsin are invited to enter the 2018 PowerUp recipe contest. Recipes must be original, kid-created and feature fruits or vegetables as the main ingredient.

The winner will take home a selection of PowerUp cooking gear, win the title of Power Chef and the recipe will be featured in PowerUp publications. The winner and runners-up will be selected through social media voting and live judging events. It’s all part of the PowerUp mission to help kids and families eat better and move more by making the healthy option the fun option. Last year’s recipe contest, which was open to residents of the St. Croix Valley and western Wisconsin, was won by six-year-old Cody Zizzo, from Mahtomedi, with his Wham-Bam Veggie Slam.

Recipes must be original, kid-created and feature fruit or vegetables as the main ingredient; contain no artificial sweeteners and little to no added sugar; be easy for families to make and delicious to eat. The recipe contest is open through June 30. Find out more — including the full rules — and submit recipes at
