Kid Food Nation Recipe Winner from Vancouver

Originally posted on Jen’s Blog of Random Thoughts

Congratulations to our very own Frog Hollow member, 9-years-old Brandon Yuen, who had won the grand prize for the Kid Food Nation Recipe Contest. He was one of the 26 chosen contestants out of hundreds of entries submitted across Canada. Brandon’s recipe is the Cheesy Quesadilla (shown below featured as one of the few appetizers at the Kid Food Nation Gala).

Thanks to the Government of Canada, Boys and Girls Club of Canada, President’s Choice Children’s Charity, Corus Entertainment, and all the families who celebrated the winners of the Kid Food Nation at the gala.

Occasionally, Brandon would help mom prepare dinner in the kitchen. He loves to help whenever we’re having his favorite foods. At home, he has been taught about kitchen safety and food safety. For the quesadilla recipe, we used mainly vegetables such as chopped fresh bell peppers and filled with grated mozzarella cheese. We usually make it with chicken, but for Brandon’s winning recipe, we use extra veggies such as a variety of bell peppers for a healthier option.

Congrats again to all the winners! See the full gallery HERE.
