LANDOVER, Md. -- Giant Food, LLC, along with partners 3-A-Day of Dairy, Dannon, and Cabot, has introduced the 'Kitch'N Kids' recipe contest for children ages 7 to 14 as a way to help promote the health benefits of dairy products as part of a daily diet.
Contestants create a "nutritious and delicious" snack or meal recipe using milk, cheese, or yogurt. Ahold-owned banner Giant Food said prizes range from a Kitch'N Kids apron to the grand prize of $10,000 in savings bonds.
"Studies show that many children and adults do not get enough dairy," said Giant Food consumer advisor Andrea Astrachan in a statement. "Dairy foods supply three of the five nutrients the government says are too low in children's diets -- calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Three servings of low-fat dairy each day is an easy way to meet daily requirements."
All qualifying recipes must use a product by Cabot and Dannon or any store-brand milk, cheese, or yogurt.
Giant Food operates 190 supermarkets in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia, and employs over 25,000 associates. Included within the 190 stores are 166 full-service pharmacies.
