Why You Should Enter the Hands-On Cook-Off

Do your kids help you make dinner? Would they recognize a whisk if it was staring them in the face?

If you’re anything like me, you probably find it more of a hinderance than help to have your little ones assist with meal prep.

However, lately I have been feeling like I have been doing them more of a disservice by putting them in front of a screen so I can focus on whipping up dinner.

Cook Together, Reap the Rewards

In its ninth year, the Hands-on Cook-off contest was inspired by research that shows that when families cook and eat together, kids gain many valuable benefits, including:

  • Better grades in school,
  • Better physical and mental health
  • Better overall social adaptability.

For those needing a little nudge (or cash incentive) to embrace the messy, glorious kitchen chaos, the contest launched April 16 and runs until May 16, 2018.

Total prizes up for grabs are valued at over $4,000!
